Cordyline obtecta Superstar ('Albatross') (PBR)

cabbage palm

2 litre pot £26.99
2 litre pot £26.99
  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast
  • Flowering period: July to August
  • Hardiness: half hardy (will need winter protection in colder areas)

    This cordyline has broad, deep reddish purple leaves, which initially form a clump, before the plant matures and starts developing an upright woody stem. Its blend of chunky evergreen foliage, rich colour and structural silhouette makes it a great addition to both borders and pots.

  • Garden care: In spring when new growth appears and all danger of hard frosts has passed, cut back frost-damaged branches to just above the newly formed shoots.
