On plant Cordyline australis



Cordylines and Phormiums have taken a real knock this winter, a lot will not recover. It goes to show that eventually we have a winter that sorts out plants which are not trully hardy to us. I expect a lot of Hebes will be gone as well, thank goodness we have plenty of wonderful hardy plants still to chose from for our climate.

If any more of your toes fall off, try planting one as you might be able to grow a whole new you. If your cordeline still has undamaged crowns, then I bet it'll grow new crowns to replace the ones it's lost from lower down.
