  • Taxus shrubs in front of Church of the Saviour on Lee Road. Any cold-temperature injury will not be visible until spring or early summer.

  • Landscape planting at the NW corner of the Church of the Saviour sanctuary on Lee Road. The upright evergreen, almost fully exposed, will be more susceptible to cold-temperature injury than the smaller shrubs covered by snow.

  • The Lanphear-Callander house on Ormond Road, a Cleveland Heights landmark. Snow that blankets the front landscape plantings serves as insulation, reducing the potential for weather-related injury.
