Coldest February on record here in Niagara

Didn't think it could get worst than last year but February was our worst on record. Lots of damage to Aucuba's so far. Time will tell with other plants.


Interests include (but not limited to) hardy tropicals, bananas and elephant ears, hardy agaves, hardy cacti, broadleaf evergreens, as well as exotic tropicals.

My buddy in Buffalo texted me yesterday regarding their weather.  He said February was the coldest month ever in Buffalo...period!  10.9F average temp.  More than 60 consecutive days below freezing!

I'd start growing hardy conifers, and birch.  They'd be right at home and look great too.  But I'd be complaining about the cold all winter long regardless of how good my plants looked.

Professional Horticulturist since 1985.  Grew up near St Louis, MO and never liked winter.  Still don't, even here in Central FL.  At least the palm palette is better!  Our garden Winter Haven is USDA Zone 9a/9b
