My daughter in the reading area has a large variegated cordyline -5' from pot soil to top. Last winter, like many others, it was hit by frost & thought to be dead - the crown went brown. On my advice, they left it & in late spring it has shown green growth in the crown but also a growth around the 'trunk' at soil level of what appear to be infant plants. Should these be removed & can they be propogated or should the old large brown leaves be removed?
What do you suggest?
