My garden proved me wrong and came back to life with a force. The pictures below were taken a month after the storm, in the middle of April. While the ti plants will need a longer time to recover, most other plants show little or no sign of the damage today.
The black ornamental taro has completely regrown
The bromeliads were under cover, so they sustained no damage
Ginger and areca palms in the hedge are also rebounding nicely
Ornamental taro (Colocasia)
My succulents were also protected
The large mossy planter is from Bali
An air plant (Tillandsia) sitting on a piece of driftwood
These pictures are all of my front yard. Next time I will post some photos of the back. Do you have a weather-related garden disaster story? Drop me a line!
