Frost damage to ceanothus

DAVID WEIR asked 12 years ago

I planted a number of ceanothus before the bad frosts. Most of the leaves of many of them have been burnt. However if I cut into the branches the inside is white and there seems to be sap there still.Is ceanothus hardy enough to withstand this weather?

Ceanothus is not very hardy and has been damaged on a widespread scale this winter. The white wood is not an indicator … the green tissue just under the skin can be.
