Cordyline Australis 'Pink Fire' - 4L Pot

'Pink Fire' is a showstopping variety of Cordyline with gorgeous long, narrow, arching, bright pink leaves striped with purple. Originally from New Zealand this shrub will add a tropical feel to your garden and will provide a great contrast to the more familiar greens of other plants. This shrub is half-hardy so will need protection from frost in winter. It is great for growing in pots and will thrive when placed on a sheltered site in both the full sun or partial shade in moist but well-drained soil.

Suited to moist, but well drained, fertile soil in full sun or partial shade position. Prepare the flower bed by using a garden fork or tiller to loosen the soil. Prepare a hole for the plant, place the plant in the hole and carefully yet firmly fill in with loose soil.
