Frost Damaged Ceanothus

How to deal with ceanothus damage by cold weather and frosty periods.

We have had loads of questions this year about ceanothus being damaged this winter so far and with more cold weather to come more damage to ceanothus is expected by the frost.
Our advice is to wait for a time to see if they re-shoots from the lower branches or below the damage and then cut back to these green shoots. The shoot might take up until the end of May to start to come through.
To check the plant is not died lightly scratch the lower stems and see if
you can see some green colour just under the branches surface, this will indicate that the plant is still alive.
