Record Cold!

This January will be the coldest January since 30 years! We had around 14 days with an average temperature below 0° Celsius in a row, though the minimal temperatures never dropped lower than what we had at the start of the month (-11°C). Nevertheless, this will be a real test of hardiness for the plants in my garden.

Arbutus unedo ‚Compacta‘ lost the flowers, so there’s no hope tasting its weirdly delicious fruit again. The foliage seems okay at the moment.

Argyrocytisus battandieri ‚Yellow Tail‘ looks extremely beautiful with its icy silvery foliage against the snow.

Callistemon citrinus ‚Woodlanders Hardy‘
is peeking out of the snow. This part is probably dead; I hope the rest isn’t.

Delicate Olearia virgata lineata. Too delicate?

The filaments of this Yucca filamentosa looking stunning covered in frost.
