Product Information

With arching deep red sword leaves the Cordyline ‘Red Star’ is a splendid plant for the patio, contrasting beautifully with the more familiar greens of other plants and bringing a tropical feel to the garden.

Plant in a pot and grow outside through the summer before moving to a protected space such as a greenhouse or conservatory for the winter.

As plants mature they become more frost hardy so can be left outside in all but the coldest weather and will withstand all but severe frost. 

When mature expect to see lovely spikes of white, exquisitely scented blooms in late summer.

Supplied as an established plant in a 13cm pot, ready to plant out. Grows to a height of approx. 6m.

Top Tips

Plant into a decorative container for best effect.

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.
  • Top-dress or pot up in spring. 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.
