What To Do If Your Plumeria Has Frost Damage

Many of you in Florida have experienced cold damage to your plumerias for the first time due to the record breaking cold this year. How do you know if you have damage? If the branch tips are mushy or black they have been damaged by frost or freezing. Cut the tips back until you get clean white wood to prevent the rot from spreading down the tree. Try to cut just above a leaf node. New branches will grow in the spring.
