Live in murrells inlet sc.. crepe Myrtle and azalea hit by frost … 28 degrees for 3 days.
Crepe Myrtle was starting to have buds after warm spell. Leaves buds look all dried and leaves shriveled.
Azaleas had already bloomemed, azaleas now leaves are all browned ..
thank you for any care ideas
These plants are 3 yrs old.
Your azaleas and crepe myrtle may need more time to recover from the frost attack. If you can cut or scrape a section of lower branch and see a thin layer of green and moisture, then they are not dead. To be on the safe side, take samples of your crape myrtle and azaleas to your local cooperative extension to have them sent for diagnosis.
