Q.Stem Rot in Birds of Paradise

Anonymous added on April 9, 2011 | Answered

We have two giant birds of paradise which grew to over 12 feet tall in the past two years. However, this winter in Sacramento, CA there were several hard freezes and the leaves withered and died. There were also several very rainy storms throughout January, February, and March. Now in April, all the new leaves coming up are either dead on arrival or black at the tips. Also, most of the stems look black at the tips. Is there anything we can do to save the plants and get them to thrive again?
