Product Information

Create an exciting and exotic display with this unique Cordyline.

The 'Can Can' is different to most Cordylines, instead of making a tall stem, its leaves form into a clumping style that will certainly stan out from other cordylines. Formed from a contrasting mixture of variegated leaves that start in a pink tone that once aged turn into cream and green leaves that clump together.

Perfect for adding a modern twist to any patio, terrace and even balcony displays, this stunning cordyline plant will provide instant impact in even the most compact of spaces with its weeping leaves. Pot your Cordyline right away into a larger, decorative planter and place by a doorway, gateway, pathway or on the patios or decking for a show-stopping display in minutes (and they look even better in pairs!).

Evergreen and hardy to -6C, this cordylines look fantastic all year-round, adding colour to your garden when all else begins to fade. We do suggest though using frost protection fleeces or wrapping or bring your plant into a garage or porch during the coldest winters.

Supplied as an established plant, approx. 40-60cm talll in a 17cm pot, ready to plant.

Care Information

Planting Advice for your Cordylines:

  • Shrub roots generally tend to spread out rather than down, so dig a planting hole 3 x wider than the roots of the shrub you're planting and mix some well-rotted compost or manure with the soil from the hole and use this to re-fill one the shrub is in place.
  • Before planting soak container-grown shrubs thoroughly and allow to drain.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots and add Mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help plants establish quicker.
  • Place your shrub in the hole at the same level at the pot and refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball and water in well.
  • Mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.
  • If youre planting into pots, place some old rocks, stones or gravel in the bottom of the pot for drainage and ballast.
  • Use the best compost you can buy such as our premium professional compost along with some sand or grit for drainage.

Aftercare Advice for Cordylines:

  • 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.
  • Pruning is not normally necessary, just remove any dead or damaged leaves with a sharp pair of secateurs.
