Re: Protection off yesterday
The Schefflera was inside a wire cage wrapped in plastic wrap which keeps wind and moisture off the plant. We had a VERY mild winter and it endured two nights of +4F. It appeared fine after those nights. We had a -13F and a-5F low temperature but I buried the plant in snow since those temperatures would be too cold. Next winter it may be too big to protect so I'll learn more about its hardiness.
