‘Cardinal’ is a great new clump-forming Cordyline notable for it’s glossy red leaves, and its upright growth and arching broad leaves. ‘Cardinal’ is a hybrid cross between the trunk-forming Cordyline australis and probably C. banksii. This is a very new cultivar in the trade and data is still being collected. Forms a clump to about 3′, and blooms in summer with many small fragrant, creamy flowers.
To enhance its radiant red color, ‘Cardinal’ prefers to grow in morning sun or part shade in hotter areas to full sun in cooler areas. This Cordyline is hardy to about 15 – 20 F.
Cardinal is an outstanding accent plant or feature planted in the garden, or is spectacular in mixed plantings (perhaps with some chartreuse foliage) in your favorite pots. If you are looking for an alternative to Phormium(Flax), this plant can be used in much the same fashion (without the common problems I find with Flax – reverting, growing larger than reported, burning foliage, mealy bugs).
Other clump-forming Corydlines available at Peacock Horticultural Nursery are Cordyline ‘Renegade’ with dark-purple, almost black, foliage, Cordyline ‘Electric Pink’ with dark maroon leaves that are edged with bright neon pink, and Cordyline australis ‘Pink Champagne’ a very slow growing truck-forming cultivar with narrow pale-green leaves that are variegated along their margins with cream and blushed pink near the base.
In addition, I offer many of the trunk forming cultivars of Cordyline which will grow to a height of 15′ or more. These include Cordyline australis ‘Dark Star’, C. a. ‘Paradise’, C. a. ‘Pink Stripe’, C. a. ‘Red Sensation’, C. a. ‘Red Star’, C. a. ‘Southern Splendour’, C. a. ‘Sundance’, C. a. ‘Sunrise’, and C. a. ‘Torbay Dazzler’.FOLLOW ME ON TWITTER
