Hi, I have a green leaved cordyline in my front garden which is about 18ft tall and has grown about a foot each year. This year with the severe frosts it has shed its leaves more than usual and the street is strewn with my leaves. But ive noticed that the whole crown has gone brown and mushy, so i went up a ladder today to inspect and feared the worst which was that the whole crown was dead, so have cut it back to the 2 stems that spear off from the main stem. Will the tree form new shoots again this year or is it a goner? Thanks Billybob.
