First Hard Freeze

 Just a couple of days after moving all the plants into the greenhouse, we had our first hard freeze of the season.  The beautiful Elephant Ears out front show how it only takes one night below freezing to make the leaves droop, sag and turn brown.  Pretty soon they will collapse to the ground and I'll cut them off.  Meanwhile the Croton got too large to come into the house this winter so it is banished to the unheated garage.  The garage can get below freezing if it is really cold so I suspect it won't survive but we won't count the survival instinct out until it is over.  Now I just have to remember to water it weekly.
