Daphne and Blue Witch

I've been keeping tabs on my various plants in their myriad locations (six in all) and am happy to give a favorable report on most. The record freezes about a month ago did some damage, but so far most of the plants are still alive, just a bit traumatized. My Ficus benghalensis and Vanilla planifolia look particularly battered. But the rest of the plants are well within their hardiness range! The Daphne odora var. aureo-marginata has started to open flowers and the Solanum umbelliferum var. incanum "Indians Gray" has been blooming non-stop for at least a few months now. I'll see about putting some pictures up later.
