Crape myrtle(Died), Leyland cypresses are all toast, as are other species of trees or shrubs usually not seen this far north(at least not this far north in the Midwest). It remains to be determined whether the Southern Magnolia saplings that I have referenced above in my post have any dead branches or branch dieback from this winter’s unusually cold temperatures( I won’t know this until probably late May, when they start producing new branches, leaves and flowers).
Not quite as bad here, but there’s about 50% bronzing on Southern Magnolias, and some fried tops of some euonymus as well. Coldest it got here in the city was -2F, it did get colder at the airport though. Overall, not bad at all, nothing like the Polar Vortex years we went through five years ago!

Winter shows no sign of being ready to leave - we're expecting big snow this weekend.

Maybe next month spring will make an appearance.

Ha! wish I could tell you but we're still buried under at least 2 feet of snow in our yard

And DC still hasn't hit 60° this month which keeps pushing back the Cherry Blossom Bloom dates.


March has been colder than February for many Eastern U.S locations.
