I've been reading through your site and it looks like two of my three 9 foot high cordylines have succumbed to the harsh winter. All of the leaves have fallen and the stumps at the top of the plants are very soft and soggy, although the main trunks seems okay at the moment. Have I lost them or is there anything I can do with these totally nude plants? Help! I didn't realise how fond I was of these plants till now.

Asked from the GoYpedia cordylines page



As you've read the other questions and replies you'll know that only time will tell whether your cordyline's have survived or not. You'll have to wait and see if they produce any new growth, either on the trunks or from the roots, then cut back the dead growth to just above the growing area. Don't give up on them til summer.
