how do i prevent frost killing my cordyline

On plant Cordyline australis



It depends really how tall it is. I have 3 in my garden the tallest being about 15ft...which luckily have weathered the low temps okay, their crowns are full and protected by a host of leaves. The younger Cordylines seem to have suffered the most and I would tie the leaves up over the crown as you would a palm for the colderst of the winter months.
