Early cold snap in sw WA appears to had killed my 10 large nz flax. I'm so unhappy. They were spectacular! Will they grow back? Thanks.

Phormium, or New Zealand Flax, is rated hardy to 15-20 F. There's a good possibility that the roots are okay and your plant will resprout. I'd prune away the obviously dead top parts and wait to see if new sprouts emerge late this spring. I hope they do!
