The extreme cold temperature on December 18, 2016 has caused the leaves on some of our broad-leaved evergreens to turn brown. On campus, the low temperature reached -9 degrees F.
Manhattan Euonymus is the most striking example on campus, but other evergreens such as barberry and boxwood are also showing damage. We will have to wait and see the extent of the damage. Hopefully, the plants will recover, but damaged tissue should be pruned off. (Ward Upham)
