All my plumeria were killed off to the soil level by a REALLY mild freeze last winter. A couple have sent up some new shoots already, but all but two of the others still have some green bark on the lowest stem and roots. The ones that came back did so a couple of months ago already. Is there any way to encourage the others with (apparently) live roots to sent up some fresh new shoots?

Basically no. Mother natures does all the work and you can not rush mother nature... If the wood below the soil line is viable you will get new shoots sooner or later. If you do not get any shoots by the end of the season I would say not to count on them to regrow, sorry.
