my four Cordyline australis which were 5ft each minimum in height have suffered due to our severe winter - all leaves have fallen down towards stalk, and are withered at trunk - trunk is also extremely wet at top - can I recover these very poor looking plants???

On plant Cordyline australis



Possibly not, you might well be one of the hordes of people heading for the garden centre for new Cordylines. Wait a while, till April, when its warmer, if not signs of growth, cut them down by half, see if they re-sprout, but it doesn't sound good if they're soggy at the top.
