The lower area of my Cordyline is prohibiting movement between garden and greenhouse. Can I remove the lower leaves so that it looks like a standard palm tree?



I pulled a lot off the bottom of mine that had died. It looks a lot neater and I prefer the look. Just grab hold of a leaf firmly and pull it downwards to rip it away from the trunk. After a while the trunk will weather in and look fine.

Agree with Myron, esp if they are brown.
