It’s been a mild winter so far
Freezes can happen as later as early March and are fairly common into late February, so we are not out of the woods yet. But by the current trend, landscaper and home owners are going to have some abnormal decisions to make in a month or so.
Most years the frost damage forces everyone to cut-back their Lantana, Bougainvillea and Yellow Bells, but not this year. Many properties are going to still need to do a hard cut-back or rejuvenate cut, because the plants are can get too big for the spot they are planted if left to grow even bigger.
On larger properties with properly spaced plants, imagine how much prettier (more flowers) your yard will get if you let the plants just keep growing.
