Cordyline - Red Star

Cordyline australis: Cordyline australis is a widely grown, trunk- forming, cold-tolerant cordyline. Although its name makes it sound as if it should be an Australian native, it hails from that other great southland, New Zealand. Many of the newer forms of cold-tolerant cordylines have reddish or purple leaves. One of the best is Red Sensation, while a recent release, Cordyline Red Fountain, doesn’t develop a trunk but remains as a low-growing mound of attractive, claret-coloured, strap-leafed foliage.
