Aeoniums

Does anyone know if an aeonium plant will recover from frost? The week the frost come we were away and didn’t think of bringing in my plant. Now it’s looking very frost bitten 😞

    Doesn't look great unfortunately. I think all you can do is bring it in, and see if it recovers. They can be cut back, but it might not work if it's already too far gone. Is there any sign of life at all?
    Someone else might be able to help further. I haven't grown them for a long time, and they have to stay indoors here until June.
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    The tops are certainly gone .  The only thing you can do is to cut back each stem until you come to a solid bit. If the actual root ball wasn't frozen, there's certainly a chance that it will produce new growth if you move it somewhere a bit more warmer.
    A case of suck it and see unfortunately.

    I'd just leave them. the new growth might be protected under the frosted bits. 
    They'll shoot out further down the stem if the top is gone.
    Devon.
