many without any leaf spotting at all. The worst damage was on P. coronata var. 'kuhlii' as it is not so leaf hardy as the others I mentioned. As long as they are kept moist they appear to tolerate cool and dry weather, as well as hot and dry weather. However, if you let the soil dry out, game over!"

"P. philippinensis, P. dicksonii, and P. philippinensis var. 'elmeri'. Those did the best here following our long cold winter (25 degrees F.), no damage. P. coronata did well, but was defoliated.
