Crown Imperials frozen...

My CI were up a foot with large buds. Overnight, we got six inches of snow and when I check on them they are bent over from the weight of snow and their foliage appears frozen. Will they recover and bloom or simply turn dark and die off once the temps go up? I guess I'm worried that the bulbs will be ok if the plant doesn't get a chance to bloom.

This year, they had multiplied so nicely. How depressing.

Today in the sunshine, the CI are standing upright again and appear no worse for wear. I don't think they will get as tall as they were last year, not that the cold temps had anything to do with that. The bulbs multiplied alot which I wasn't expecting the third year.

Thanks for the update. I did not know how they might fare, and am glad to hear they made it through just fine.
