Brugmansia Frost Damage

Anonymous added on December 8, 2010 | Answered

We had an unexpected frost last night and my brugmansia is now all wilted from the frost. The tree is in the ground and cannot be moved unless we dig it up. What can I do? Can I cut the tree back and mulch the base? Please help!

The tree will look unsightly for awhile, but it will regrow its leaves with no extra care as long as the stems and branches are still green. You should see new leaf buds develop where the old leaves were in about 1-2 weeks.
