Best known as houseplants, we have been growing cordylines outdoors sucessfully for 12 years. We are finally able to share them with you. This new selection that we imported from Africa has narrow reddish bronze foliage, arching out from a central stem. Like most perennials, it dies to the ground unless the temperatures remain above 15 degrees.
