good morning everyone!
I live in southeast tx where the temps are typically pretty mild. I started some planting over the weekend and would really like to finish it up. If it matters... I have a queen palm, birds of paradise, and hibiscus to plant.

well I looked at the weather and the temp today is 71/34 and tomorrow is 56/36. Will it be to cold to plant these and should I bring them in the garrage for a couple of days? I am new to this gardening thing and typically kill everything I touch!

I know birds of paradise can handle very cold temps (down to 24 ) as long as they are not in bud - the buds will die off in cold weather. But they don't really like frost at any time, it gives them leaf burn - so I'd hang on until all frost danger has passed, unless you want to be going wrapping them in a blanket some nights!

Here's a link to an Arizona site on the plants
