Last week I posted a photo of the calla lilies in our back yard after a particularly cold night (10 hours below 32°F). I was convinced that all top growth was dead and that we would have to wait for the leaves to grow back from the rhizomes.
I’m very happy to report that I was wrong.
While some leaves are clearly damaged…
…and some look curiously yellow…
…the majority of them fared much better shape than I had anticipated.
It even looks like the flower stalks have survived unscathed and the flowers will open up soon, provided the temperatures manage to stay above freezing.
What a testament to the resilience of these beautiful plants!
