The Cordyline glauca will provide rich and dark green foliage throughout the year. Cordylines are happy to grow underneath trees, but brighter light levels will intensify the colours of the leaves. Wet feet can cause root rot and fungal diseases, but cordylines are generally easy to grow. As they grow taller, the lower leaves can die off and become untidy, so these should be removed. They withstand dry conditions, though their growth will slow. Beautiful mauve-coloured flower spikes appear in summer. Great for adding a tropical feel to the landscape. Mass plant for impact or plant in a container as a feature.
