Multi or single stemmed shrub. Deep midnight wine sword shaped foliage colour, edged with a hint of silver.
Prefers a well drained soil, will tolerate coastal conditions and strong winds. Fertilise annually with a long term-slow release fertiliser. This plant has a low water requirement once established. Remove spent leaves as required.
Looks classy in a decorative pot and would make a classy addition to any garden landscape. Compliments well in conjunction with other Cordyline varieties and Phormium varieties for example.
