I have noticed recently that the leaves of my Cordyline “Red Star” have started splitting. What could be causing this damage?
I have a large 3 metre high privet hedge in my garden. I have noticed that it’s thickness seems to significantly reduce over the winter months, with a lot of the leaves falling to the ground. This made me think: is it normal for privet hedges to drop leaves during winter, or is it a sign that there is something wrong?
My Cordyline australis ‘Red Star’ has flourished since I got it around 5 years ago. After a prolonged cold snap in the UK this winter, with temperatures down to -10 in my area, it has sustained some severe frost damage. All of the leaves at the top of the stem have completely collapsed and turned brown. I am concerned that the plant may have died.
