    New growth, continued

    Entering the garden
    Picture 1 - Rex - I trimmed the lower branches over a month ago. The upper leaves still look colorful
    Picture 2 - Van Buren on the left, Veitchii on the right - both were cut at the same time as Rex.
    Picture 3 - Davis #3 - dropped some leaves but nothing was trimmed
    Picture 4 - Zadroga (McLean), Compte' de Germiny, and Alley Cat - no damage

    New growth, continued some more

    Deep in the garden
    Picture 1 - On the left - Rheedii, that keeps getting taller, below it Edwin T Meredith and a Yellow Mammey. On the right Twist and Point that dropped a few leaves, but not many.
    Picture 2 - Arrowhead - undamaged
    Picture 3 - William Craig on the left, totally defoliated, and King of Siam that lost all the lower leaves
    Picture 4 - AFD #2 that went in the ground just before the weather turned cold. I went back to the original plant, that these cuttings came from and it was almost all gone from the winter. I did rescue 3 of the best cuttings though and they're in the mistbed.

    New growth, continued even some more

    North side of the garden
    Picture 1 - Thanksgiving - completely defoliated
    Picture 2 - Davis #14 on the left, Prince Phillip on the right - both lost some leaves. There's what I believe to be a Caudatus tortilis to the far left that got beat up bad, but held some leaves and the Buddy, behind it, that lost all its leaves but is coming back
    Picture 3 - Miami, Mortii, and Kentucky - all got leggier
    Picture 4 - (East side) - Pinocchio - held up well

    New growth, last set

    East side of the garden
    Picture 1 - Pink Bravo - no damage, but all the Diffenbachia that was in the ground to right of it turned to mush and has been replaced by Selloums. All of the Diffenbachia, save for one very small piece, is gone. That one piece is from the original plant I bought almost 40 years ago.
    Picture 2 - I've been calling this the Swan, but it might be C.I. Craigen
    Picture 3 - Stoplight - in the ground 11 years, no damage
