Hi, I have some year old Red Twig Dogwoods (3 regular, 2 variegated) and we will have a frost advisory. They have just put out new leaves...should I cover them, or leave them alone. Thank you! Soilsenasuil

Leave them alone. These are some of the most cold hardy shrubs available. Frost damage to foliage should be slight, if any, and the plant can withstand a complete defoliation should catastrophic temperatures befall :-)

hardy or not.. that does not mean tender leaves wont be damaged.. it simply means you can beat this thing with a stick.. and it aint gunna care ...
