Dramatic and Colorful Spikes

Wherever you plant Red Star Cordyline – in your flower bed or in a container garden – you’ll add a touch of drama. Its sword-like leaves grow sharply upward to add a textural focal point to any mixed planting, but its commanding presence is also strong enough to act as a standalone plant.

1. Burgundy-red leaves. You’ll see other cordyline plants that have green foliage, but Red Star Cordyline is much more colorful because of its deep burgundy-red leaves.

2. Versatile. Equally at home as an annual plant outdoors or as a year-round houseplant.

3. Drought-tolerant. Once established, Red Star Cordyline needs only occasional watering.

Plant it as edging for walkways, in urns on either side of your front entrance or as a patio plant. You can even use Red Star Cordyline in hanging baskets as a vertical accent with trailing plants.

Easy Care
You won’t have to fuss over Red Star Cordyline! Get it off to a good start with these tips and it’ll hold its own throughout the growing season:

Sun. Although it can handle full sun in milder climates, it will flourish with some afternoon shade in hotter regions.

Soil. Organically rich, well-draining soil is best in the garden; in pots, use a soilless potting mix that’s formulated for container plants.

Water. Keep the soil moist after transplanting, but reduce watering as the plant is rooted firmly in place.

Fertilizer. Apply a slow-release fertilizer once – at the beginning of the growing season.

Winter care. Gardeners in USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 9 through 11 can grow Red Star Cordyline year-round. If you live outside this range, move your plant indoors before frost damages it.

Container tip. If you grow Red Star Cordyline in a container, a deep pot is best to accommodate the long taproot that mature plants have.
