Shane Smith:Expect Odd Looking Plants, Damage

Cheyenne Botanic Gardens Director Shane Smith says the cold, snowy weather which hit the area earlier this month will have an impact on trees and other plants in southeast Wyoming.

Smith says that while the precipitation in the form of snow was welcome for gardeners and other plant enthusiasts, the unusually cold weather that accompanied it was not. Smith notes that snow in April in the area is not unusual. But he says what was different this year was that the temperatures plunged down to or near single digit range on several occasions during the month, resulting in damage to buds, leaves and plants in general.

Smith says that while most trees and plants will survive, they will be more vulnerable than usual to disease. He also says some plants may take on a different appearance than usual this year due to the cold weather.
