Winter freeze damaged and killed many of our native cacti as well as non indigenous plants such as the palm. Several winters ago we had a good freeze but not as devastating as this year. Even today we had a low of 26 and a high of 78 at my house.
The palm usually doesn't do well but recovers in the spring after severe trimming. Here is a photo of a very protective taller palm that protects the smaller palm.
This decorative pear bloomed for
just about a week before the freeze killed the blossoms.
Even putting the paper cup cap doesn't work.
I fear my night blooming cerus will loose a lot of arms.
Prickly pear particularly lost a lot of pads. Almost like the freeze made
the pads so heavy that they just fell off.
Brownish yellow on the cholla may indicate loss of portions of the cactus.
