Dark and moody wine-purple foliage makes an excellent foil for brighter-leaved shrubs or red, orange and purple flowering plants. Easygoing and low maintenance wherever you site it.

Cordyline australis atropurpurea

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.
