Frosty (1)

The plant in the background is native, the others are tender exotics. They will come back in spring.
This bamboo is supposed to be green. The cold leached out its color. All enthusiastic in summer, this rubber tree did not like the coldest night after it had held out several frosty and dark hours before.

There are bananas that can take the cold, this one croaks at the first sign of dipping temps.

Oh dear - that does not look too good...

This must have been the coldest spell in a long time in Florida, I assume.
