Will my corn plant survive if it froze and the leaves wilted and turned dark?


The frozen foliage will have to be removed. Dracaena are not cold tolerant, so it is most likely that the plant has been irrevocably damaged and will die completely. It is possible that if the cold exposure was short (30 min - 1hr) in time duration, and the low temperatures were not extreme it might try to sprout new growth, but even in the rare event this has happened, it will likely take a very long time for signs of recovery to be evident.

A long duration cold exposure or exposure to a hard freeze will be the end of a corn plant.
