Our three Cordyline australis looks dead after the snow. Most of the leaves have fallen off. Are they definitely dead and what’s the best way to dispose of the dead leaves? Thank you.

This article will help you with determining if the plants are dead: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/environmental/how-to-tell-if-a-plant-is-dead-and-how-to-recover-an-almost-dead-plant.htm But I have a feeling that even if the stems are dead, the roots (having been insulated from the snow) are alive and these plants regrow from the root quite well. I would throw the leaves away. They can be poisonous to animals so better safe than sorry.
