Winter damage can be a serious problem for evergreen plants in windy or S/SW- facing locations. It can manifest itself in several different ways. Damage will usually appear as wilting, browning or bleaching on the leaves, especially in newly transplanted material.

The most common form of winter damage is “winter burn” which results from warm sun and wind causing excessive transpiration or loss of water in foliage. When the roots are in frozen soil they are not able to replace the lost water and browning of the leaves will result.

Our anti-desiccant spray Program helps to protect exposed ornamental evergreens by reducing transpiration up to 80%. When plants are relying on stored moisture all winter, it is important to help them retain as much as possible for healthy growth next spring.
Multiple applications may be needed
depending on location and conditions.
