Rich dark plum-red colour distinguishes this cordyline; elegant and dramatic for containers, bold statement planting, or massed for colour. Upright habit is good for feature planting or driveways. Low maintenance and cold tolerant.
APPEARANCE : A fountain of slender fairly stiff strappy leaves, dark plum--red, emerging from a central trunk. USE IN: Great as a contrasting plant for a bold statement in the garden or massed together for a splash of colour. Suitable for pots. 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 dry conditions but growth is restricted in these conditions. CARE: Mulch and water regularly until the plant is established, usually around 12 weeks. Remove dead foliage and cut back in spring if plants become tall. Cutting all foliage off is fine as the plant will regrow from the stem. HEIGHT & WIDTH: 2 m H x 1.2m W. YOUR PLANTS : These are tubestock plants, young healthy plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80 mm x 42 mm wide.
