Cordyline Australis 'Red Comet' - 7.5L Pot

'Red Comet' is one of the tougher varieties of Cordyline. With long, narrow, arching, deep-red leaves this shrub will add a tropical feel to your garden and will provide great contrast to the more familiar greens of other plants. This shrub has a good tolerance to frost once established but will need to be kept in a greenhouse or conservatory during the winter when young. 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.
