Full Product Details

Product Information

Add a touch of class and intrigue to any garden with this striking evergreen shrub.

Offering up a feel of the tropics, this easy-to-grow architectural variety is instantly recognisable for its long, arching sword-like foliage typically growing from single stems.

Red Cordyline varieties are always popular, owing to a striking colour and shape. ‘Red Star’ is an evergreen perennial that features long pointed red-bronze leaves that grow in circular clusters.

For added interest, ‘Red Star’ blooms with clusters of tiny white flowers in the warm summer months, which are brilliant for attracting friendly pollinators. The show does not stop there however, as berries grow in the autumn.

A distinctive palm-like style and compact growth habit make this a great option for container planting to bring character to patios and balconies.

Cordylines are known for being a low-maintenance shrub that bring spiked accents to garden displays. As the plant matures, tall and bare stems start to prominently emerge to resemble trees, with spiked leaf tops.

Supplied as one established plant in a 17cm pot.

Care Information

Planting Advice for your Cordyline:

  • 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 once 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 you’re 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:

  • 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 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 Advice:

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