Not sure if my Cordyline is dead or not! All that is left from winter is the trunk, with five woody fronds at the top of the 3 foot trunk.



Well if its still got growth at the top, that's a good sign, especially if there's signs of new growth from the tip or from the base. Were it dead, it would have no leaves at all.

try the thumbnail test on the branches, to see if it is green underneath

Not a very useful guide on Cordylines, Hijuju - parts of the trunk could be dead and other parts alive.
