WHOLESALE CORDYLINE FRUTICOSA NURSERIES
Cordyline fruticosa are a more tropical to sub tropical plant with broader foliage and more colourful than other species. It is native to tropical Australia and is found in New Guinea through Melanesia.
It is not the species that are widely grown but the many cultivars that have been developed over recent years.
Cordyline fruticosa grow well in a humus rich moist but well drained soil in full sun to part shade, a little protection from the hot afternoon sun will keep it looking at its best although it does well in full sun as well. An excellent plant where a little height and nice foliage is needed in the border.
The species can reach 4m over time and will fruit with red to orange berries.
