Product Information

This fabulous cordyline will bring a tropical feel to your garden wherever you position it whether as a specimen plant in your beds or borders, or in a decorative pot as an eye-catching feature for your patio, terrace, or balcony to provide instant impact in even the most compact of spaces. Or plant into a modern container and place it by a doorway, gateway or at the end of a path for an exotic focal point.

Attractive swirls of long, swordlike leaves fan out symmetrically from a central, slow-growing trunk; and being evergreen, it will look attractive all year round, maintaining colour and structure through the autumn and winter when other plants begin to fade. Place yours in a sunny spot and it will thrive for years to come!

The bigger the plant, the hardier it will become it can withstand temperatures of -7C, but we always recommend using frost-protection fleece or wrapping, or bringing container-grown plants into a garage, porch or greenhouse during the coldest winters.

Supplied as an established plant, approx. 55+cm tall, in a 14cm pot, ready to pot on or plant out.

Top Tips

  • Add mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help establish more quickly.
  • Place one either side of your doorway or gateway in decorative pots for instant impact.

 

Care Information

  • Water plants freely during the growing season, and sparingly in winter.
  • Feed monthly with a balanced, liquid fertiliser from spring to late summer, and they will grow 10-15cm a year here in the UK.
  • Topdress or pot up in spring.
  • Cut off any dead leaves at the bottom, and that is what forms the trunk.
  • Although frost hardy, young cordyline plants, and also coloured varieties, are more prone to cold damage. This can be prevented by tying up the foliage to reduce wind damage and prevent water collecting around growing points and causing rotting.
  • In areas prone to severe winters, wrap the trunk with layers of fleece and place a 15cm (6in) layer of mulch, such as bark, over the root area.
  • Move container-grown plants to a frost-free location, such as a greenhouse, during periods of cold or wet weather temporary shelter in a shed or garage will do.
