Cordyline banksii x australis x pumilo ‘Design-a-line Burgundy’


Evergreen, Ground covers, Ornamental grasses and grasslike plants

CORDYLINE

Woody plants with swordlike leaves, related to yuccas and agaves but usually ranked with palms in nurseries and landscapes. Good next to swimming pools. As houseplants, prefer bright indirect light but tolerate low light; rarely bloom indoors. To keep indoor plants from getting too big, grow them in undersize pots and repot annually in fresh potting soil. Cordyline is often sold as Dracaena.

Cordyline banksii x australis x pumilo ‘Design-a-line Burgundy’

Striking, burgundy-colored weeping foliage forms a tight, dense clump. The long, narrow leaves have enough substance so they arch gracefully. An exciting option from the Sunset Western Garden Collection for adding height to containers or mixed borders.
