Since Dec I have had 14 nights 36 F or below and 26 nights where the low hit into the 30s. I think we up here in the San Diego Artic <_< have had more cold nights this year than last, but drier. The days have been warm, but again drier so more sun and perhaps better soil temp? :hmm: Dec 7 and 23 were the coldest nights hitting 32 F for a while, Im not sure of the duration, but it lead to more damage on my Prichardia H. this year, but less on Royals and Howeas. :blink:

My Schiz is naked, :blush: but the plumaria still have a few leaves and are starting to push so that is unusual. Citrus, Avos and camillias are in full bloom and the Jasmine and freesia were a few weeks earlier this year. The ground hog was WRONG! It looks like the San Diego Tropical zone is full speed ahead!

We have had a lot of mild santa anas, making for the dry warm days and crisp cold nights, but surely we'll have our typical long cool Spring until May. Donchathink?

I was just thinking that as well Matty. I took this picture a couple of days ago of my Schizolobium.

Schizolobium.jpg



and speaking of Schizolobium, I love how fast these things grow. Here's the same one pictured above just over a year ago:

These are amazing for a quick canopy. I have another that's the same size on the other side of the half circle pathway.

I've felt that its been really warm for me. Only a couple of nights hit 36 but the rest was above that. Very dry so far. I hope it will be a long growing season this year. Last year was good and this will be the magical 3rd year for some stuff in the ground for me so hopefully i'll get to see some size. It also seemed to be a fast winter. Your place is looking nice Jason, I remember seeing some pics a while ago and it seems to be filling in nicely.

I seem to be in a warm spot Carl, or my temp gauge is messed up. Where are you at in Vista? Vista is the next street over for me.

The very southside across from the Home Depot on Melrose. I take the temp reading in the coldest spot of the yard, which is in the front so I know what the very bottom was. My backyard is probably 3-4 degrees warm on average than the lowest in the front.

Jason, young Shizolobiums, in their first or second year, approximately 12' or less, will often not loose their leaves. Not sure why but I've seen this in lot's of deciduous trees when they're young. Not sure if that's what's happening on yours, but I thought I'd mention it because I find it interesting.

Matt,

This has nothing to do with what you are talking about. But, there was a very interesting report on a Brazilian TV show, Globo Rural (Rural news show) about reofrestation using Schizolobium trees in Amazonia the other day. Due to the fast growth rate of these trees and their straight limbless trunks they have become very popular for tree farms. They produce harvestable sized trees in 5 years. They are used mainly to produce MDF sheets. They are basically weeds around here growing in secondary forest areas as a pioneer plant so they do very well in monoculutre.
