I have a Cordyline that until this winter was growing quite well, but has now lost all it's leaves. Clearly we think it is the severe weather that's done it. It is growing in mainly clay. Isit likely that it will produce more leaf?

I would be very tempted to just hang in there until it warms up and you can then see if it will rejuvenate lower down the trunk, i have several like this at work that i'll be leaving until later on.

Me too, lost a cordyline last winter and my other one lost its leaves last year but started sprouting again from the trunk, it hadn;t grown much and it looks like this winter has killed that 'sprout' too.

I'm gonna leave it a while and see what happens when it warms up ...

With frost damaged plants of any kind, it is always better to wait for them to sprout out naturally before you do anything else.
