Tried & True Cordyline


 Cordyline australis

Cordyline, also known as “Ti” or the “King of Foliage”, is a stunning plant that is sure to add a touch of elegance and flair to any garden. This plant is native to Southeast Asia and the Pacific Islands. It can come in many colours or colour combinations including green, orange, pink, purple, red, yellow, cream and white. Because of its versatility and foliage interest, Cordyline is prized by many gardeners.

Cordyline is an upright and sturdy plant that can tolerate various light levels – preference to partial to full sunlight, but it can also tolerate some shade. Some species prefer almost full sun to show their best colours. For optimal growth, they prefer well-draining soil and require regular watering, but once established they can tolerate some dry spells. Cordyline is a perfect “thriller” in a gorgeous combination planter or an upright focal point in the landscape. Where it is cooler and temperatures fall below 15°F or 9°C, Cordyline should be grown as an annual.

Overall, Cordyline Red Star is a beautiful and versatile plant that is perfect for anyone looking to add some colour and interest to their garden. Whether you’re an experienced gardener or just starting out, this low-maintenance plant is sure to impress.
