Trop­i­cal stun­ner hail­ing from Pa­cific Is­lands

Yorkshire Post - YP Magazine - - Advertising Feature -

CORDYLINE ter­mi­nalis is a proper trop­i­cal stun­ner with large leaves rang­ing in colour from var­ie­gated pale pinks and greens to pur­ple or deep red. It hails from the Pa­cific is­lands – so not too happy out­doors in the UK. Here it’s best to grow it in a big container and bring it in­doors when the tem­per­a­ture drops. It likes a well-drained but mois­ture-re­ten­tive soil and reg­u­lar feed­ing with a sol­u­ble fer­tiliser. Raise hu­mid­ity around the plant by putting a layer of peb­bles in a tray and set­ting the pot on the peb­bles.
