Cold weather can seriously damage Cordylines, as the frost gets into the soft new growth at the centre of the crown, water collected in there can also rot the new growth. If you have a young plant or have a larger plant in an exposed area then you could protect it by wrapping the leaves with fleece or an old sack. I have a five year old Cordyline in my garden and last year the frost got it .The centre of the plant died, but loads of side shoots have appeared and the plant is looking better than ever. So don’t despair or dig up your plant if yours starts to die back there’s a strong chance it will pick up again.
