General Garden Info

Freeze Damage - Identifying

The damage from cold weather sometimes doesn't show up for several days or even weeks. Diagnosing the problem is part memory and part detective work.

Suspect cold damage when branch tips do not leaf out but lower parts of the plant do so.

Suspect cold damage when leaves have unusual patterns of dead cells.

Take a look at these examples:


freeze damage to hydrangea


cold damage to tomato leaves


flower bud death on azalea


cold damage to creeping fig


ice on camellia bud


freeze damage to crapemyrtle


freeze damage to hydrangea flower
