i have a cordyline australis after the frost this year all the leaves turned brown i have removed all the leaves left with just the trunk part of the trunk felt soft i have cut this away is my tree dead



If you have cut the dead part of the trunk away to sound wood then, as a rule you should get lots of new shoots breaking out, sometimes at different points on the remaining trunk, more commonly though is to see quite a few coming from the base, once this has happened then choose which you want to keep and break away the rest so you can form a new trunk, maybe go for two /three and have a multi stemmed cordyline, julien.
