String up the bunting, let those party-poppers fly, it's celebration time.
Like a lot of peeps in the UK our Cordyline, which was about 7 feet tall, took a hammering in the extremely cold winter & lost all its leaves. The stem remained fairly solid so I didn't chop it down but started to train a clematis to grow up the totem-pole as it was quite a 'feature' in the garden.
The other day I noticed that 2 new shoots have appeared on either side of the base...Rejoice. My mother-in-law's 2 foot tall pot-grown version has also started to re-shoot.
Off to have a cocktail sausage & cheese on a stick to celebrate.
