CORDYLINE - RED STAR
Botanical Name: Cordyline australis
A fast growing native to New Zealand that can be grown as a palm-like shrub or a small tree. Its narrow, sword-like upper leaves remain erect while the lower leaves in the tip cluster droop. Panicles of fragrant white flowers appear in late spring, followed by small white or blue fruits. Red Star is grown for its rusty bronze-red leaves and is often used for height and texture in annual container plantings. Cordylines grow best in deep, well-drained soil in full sun, and will tolerate alkaline soils, drought and seaside gardens.
