On the afternoon of March 3, in anticipation of the overnight freezes, I covered the blooming scapes of Fritillaria raddeana with a big pot and then heaped wood chips over the pot. I uncovered the plant this afternoon, and the frit is fine. The low on the morning of March 4 was 22.1 degrees F (-6.1 C) and on March 5 it was 19 degrees F. (- 7;2  C). The flowers of the star magnolia were mostly destroyed. Jim McKenneyMontgomery  County, Maryland, USA, USDA zone 7, where a brief warm spell is on the way.
