Re: CT damage report (z7a) low temp -5F = Sabal death?
Great update! If your Morton citrange is only defoliated, that is a great result given how cold it got... I would be hesitant to relocate it. I've seen an approx 10 year old PT planted only a few feet from a house foundation in central MA that hadnt yet outgrown its site.
I'm also a bit surprised you had so much damage in the S. minors, I would have thought they would be fine with your protection.
