Answer: I wish I could say with certainty that your plants will recover, but I'm afraid only time will tell. A short freeze will damage the tops of the plants but not the roots. In this case, you'll see new growth from the crown when the weather warms; a hard freeze (more than 4-6 hours of temperatures below 32) can damage the roots as well as the tops of your tropical plants. In this case, they may not recover. At this point, it's best to wait and see how your plants respond to warmer weather. When things begin growing you can prune off the frost damaged plant parts to make way for healthy new growth. Let's hope for the best!
