Please help..my cordyline plant which I have had about 5 yrs and is about 6ft tall has died..the crown is dead and all the leaves are just about off..can I cut the cordyline to try and get it back to life and if so, it has an extremely thick bark, so how would I do this?..is it now too late in the year? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you Laura

It may be too late to resurrect this plant. Whatever killed it, possibly crown rot, you don't want to spread to any other plants, so I would discard this and start over with a new healthy one.
