I'm sorry - I didn't mean to hit the like button.

You've taken a few losses - that's a shame.

Thank you both for your kind comments!

It's really a shame!!!!!!

From now on, I have to grow a lot more 'frost hardy' plants. I'm going to purchase a few hostas very soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow! A lot of cold damage to your garden! How cold did it get? Hopefully, this one will come back in spring!

The temperature went down to minus 10 degrees (c) and we had some days when it didn't get out of the minus zone all through the day. Our neighbour said it was the coldest winter since 1956. Lots of people in our village didn't go out for 10 days, scared to drive on the icy/snowy road!

I really hope this will come back in spring. If not, I would get deeply depressed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow! That's extremely cold!

Cordyline is pretty tough, it should come back from the roots.

Thank you for the positive comment!! That's what I wanted!!

You're welcome! I always try to be positive.

I know Cordyline has a deep carrot-like root. It tends to be pretty insulated from cold.
