Yucca

Anonymous added on March 30, 2011 | Answered

My yucca was very badly hit by severe frost and looks to be in a very bad state. Is there anything I can do to give it a kick start? It's about 10 years old.

If the stems are still alive, they will regrow their leaves and there is also a chance the roots are alive and they will regrow from the roots. I would give them a month, and if you do not see growth by then, they are most likely dead. These articles will help you as well:
