would mulching my red cordaline in the winter help protect it

Asked from the GoYpedia cordylines page



Yes, it would go some way to protecting it, but you should think about the top growth too - maybe wrapping it with hessian stuffed with straw, or several layers of horticultural fleece? Don't use bubble wrap, though, as the leaves must be able to breathe.

Generally, damage to Cordylines occurs to the topgrowth, the trunk particularly - often the trunk is killed back to the ground, but the plant regrows off the roots still present, so its actually the trunk and growing tip at the top which need protecting. Follow Spritzhenry's advice above.
