I think the reason your plants, at least the majority of them, survived was because the super-cold exposure was brief. I am sure I lost those dozens of Plumeria not only because the temperature dipped in to the teens but also because we did not get above freezing for two full days/nights.

My outdoor plants, mostly succulents are surviving our cold right now, since we have no rain too. So they can just chill out there nicely. Then with the city trees finally dropping its leaves, more sun is on them now, so they have a chance to warm up.

I am still at it..... Rolling on the floor laughing

I have been stalking this plant at Lowes they got it in this summer. I am so cheap I refused to give them 20.00. They usually are marked 18.00

They had 4 and this one finally hit their 3.00 rack.

Oo, that's a nice one! Lovey dubby I was terrible... I picked up one of those last week, but I spotted 3 in one pot (I normally only see one to a pot). *Blush*

I just noticed this one is different with its reverse variegation (variegated in the middle, green on the edges). Now I need one of these. Lovey dubby *Blush*

I agree Cinta, it's beautiful. Good catch and well worth the wait. Thumbs up Usually if I want to find fantastic bargains like that, I have to go out of town to either Columbia or Charleston. I have a Dr's appt. in Columbia tomorrow. Guess where else I'm going to make a stop? Green Grin!

Yep, you're right, Cinta. I'll need some cheering up by then. It's just what the Dr. ordered. nodding I remember you telling us when you 1st saw it, that you'd be stalking it. Hilarious! Rolling on the floor laughing Sometimes, I go to my local store to make a mental note of what perennials are blooming. Then I start planning if I want it and where to place it. When they go out of bloom, and plant tags get lost, they discount them. To the non-gardener (like my DH) it just looks like greenery. That's when I grab it (if it's still healthy), knowing it's a diamond in the rough. Sometimes, I'll even get a 2nd bloom if I deadhead them. Whistling I also ask when the next shipment is due to arrive, so that I can keep an eye out for when they discount the old to make room for the new. nodding

Debbie thanks for the "inquire about shipments" I did not think of that one.

My family laugh at me buying what they say are dead plants. But always talk about all the beautiful plants I have around. I tell them they are those dead plants they tease me about. nodding

This is a better pic. It was dark after I came home from fixing the rental property. So the other pic did not show how much white is in the variegation.
