Sollya heterophylla Frost Damage

Hello,

I have a Sollya Heterophylla which has dropped all its leaves over Winter, presumably as a result of frost. I appreciate that the plant is semi-hardy but is this damage likely to be terminal or is there a chance that the plant will recover?

Many thanks,
Lou

Re: Sollya heterophylla Frost Damage

I don't know this plant, so can't say anything specific. But my experience in general with trees and shrubs is even when it seems that they have been totally winter killed and are dead, they often come back from the roots. So I think there is a good chance your plant will make it.
