Cordylines come in many colors and shaded leaves. C Australis, most commonly grown every where, is the hardiest. Central growth in circular fashion growing tall like a purple tower. Red , creams, purple, burgundy, black striped leaves look really Awesum.
Cordylines is a genus with about 15 species of monocotyledonous plants family Asparagaceae, sub family Lomadroideae. The scientific name is Cordyline.
The name Cordyline comes from a Greek word Kordyle means "club" referring to the club shaped base, underground stem or rhizomes.
The plant is very easy to grow and each tall plant gives out small babies from sides that can grow along the mother plant or if planted in other pot give out a fresh new plant.
I really like the shaped varieties that are green…
