The Q&A Archives: Bauer's Dracaena

Question: I bought 4 of your beautiful plants in one gallon containers last summer and regaled in their growth and color throughout the season here. Sadly the frost ended their fabulous display and there they sit in a wilted clump.
Spring beckons and I am hopeful. Do you have any suggestions for maintaining them or preparing them for the new season. Should they be simply cut back, pinched off, left alone?
Any help or suggestion would be appreciated.

Thank you

Answer: Cordyline 'Baueri'is only considered winter hardy to zone 9 (think Florida) so unfortunately they are most probably dead after a winter outdoors in Illinois. I'm sorry.
