DESCRIPTION: Dark wine-purple slender leaves in a rosette. Develops a slender trunk with age. USES: Plant en masse for impact, or as a contrast accent plant with gold or silver-leaved plants and wine-coloured flowers. CARE: Remove dead foliage and cut back in spring if they get tall. Cutting all foliage off is fine as the plant will regrow from the stem. PLANTING: Cordylines are surprisingly hardy and worth a go in most protected areas but will prefer full sun to part shade. Plant in a well drained soil, mulch and fertilise when planting. Surprisingly tolerant of cold and dry conditions but growth is restricted in these conditions. HEIGHT & WIDTH: 2 metres but can be cut to required height. PLEASE NOTE: These plants are tube-stock plants, with the benefit of being a young plant they will establish quickly in your garden. The average size of your plants will be 15 -25 cm in height with a pot size of 42 mm wide and 80 mm high.
