Hello, my plumeria tree planted in the ground - froze although It was wrapped and covered well. My yard-men cut it down to 3\\\" above ground. 3 weeks and there was no sign of life. Today I scratched part of the bark and it is green. Is there anything I should do to help it? Will it live? And if so how long before it shows some frowth. This was a 6 goot tall plumeria tree which I loved. Thank you in advance for any advice you can offer

It is possible to 'stump' or cut down a plumeria and still have it grow back to be beautiful again-someday!
If you are seeing green when doing a scratch test-great sign.
It is just a matter of wait and see what cold damage was done to the roots.
Give it time!
I found this link that may be a good read and show you a recovered Plumeria.
