Available as a wonderful collection of 2 Cordyline Palms, the dazzling leaves of the 'Pink Passion' and 'Lime Passion' guarantee to add a tropical touch to your garden with their stunning colour and bold shape.
Cordylines are well renowned for their ability to withstand salty winds, so for those of you lucky enough to live by this sea, this exotic looking palm is a great choice for your coastal garden.
The leaves of the 'Pink Passion' are a sword-like, greyish-purple with bright pink margins - they look amazing, especially with sunlight shining through them.
The 'Lime Passion' showcases bright green and cream spears - the architectural shape makes it a great statement plant on a patio, terrace or balcony as well as in the ground.
Initially the evergreen leaves form a dense clump at ground level, but eventually Cordyline 'Passion' grows to form a small, palm-like tree reaching 1.5m in height.
Evergreen and hardy to -5°C (23°F), this Cordyline looks 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 to bring your plant into a garage or porch during the coldest winters.
What Is Supplied
Item 680279 supplied as:
Supplied as 2 x 9cm pots and ready to plant
Plant into a decorative container for best effect.
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.
