So sad! But what is (was) it?
Nolina nelsonii. I will have to say that this plant was potted and it sat out all winter, while others sat in a more protected location. It was so deceiving because the foliage looked absolutely fine. I've checked the crowns of the others and they all look to be well.The two small one I had in the ground, for 2 years now also succumbed to rot. Yes, very sad!
I was recently admiring a Nolina at Cistus. When I touched it, it fell over. Yours is not the only one....unfortunately.
