Frost claims plants in fall garden

The frost last night took a toll on some of the plants in the landscape. The exposed coleus took the hardest hit, followed by the impatiens. The tops of the dragon wing begonias also got clobbered.

At the same time, the purple on the ‘Miss Kim’ lilac has intensified to a glorious hue.
