There are many features to recommend this cordyline including its fantastic cream and green variegated, soft, spiky, foliage radiating from the top of a slender trunk. Also its comparatively diminutive stature, compared with the species growing only to 3m making it ideal for smaller gardens and patios.
Will grow in most soil conditions and is tolerant of drought once established, for the densest and most full crown of foliage grow in full sun.
Plants usually branch after flowering.
Height and spread after 4 – 5 years 1.5m x 80cm
Semi-mature height after 10 – 12 years 3m x 1.2m
