Cordyline Flower

Cordyline fruticosa 

Beautiful deep red plant, edged with pink. Elegant arching shape. Very popular with landscapers as it tolerates full sun. Add gorgeous pops of colour to your garden.

Flower of the day

On This Day

Cabbage... Kiwi Style

If there were one plant that I could think of to describe New Zealand, it would be the cordyline.

Clean up... Aisle 3!

So Bank holiday Monday saw me finally clearing out one of the corners of my garden. The corner mainly had Lupins in it but there was another plant in there that tends to get overwhelmed during the summer. 149 more words
