Cordyline Australis Red Star Shrubs

An established and popular variety of Cabbage Palm that boasts deep red strap like evergreen foliage that radiates out from the centre to form a beautifully symmetrical specimen plant that will produce wonderfully fragrant white flowers in July and August on mature plants. Cordylines look great in containers, younger plants will add some elegant height to bedding schemes and they are perfect for all kinds of themed and contemporary gardens, in fact anywhere where the fantastic architectural sihouette may be appreciated.

Cordyline Australis Red Star

Cordyline Red Star prefer a warm sunny spot in well drained soil although they will take just a little shade. In cold areas Cordylines may need some winter protection, this can be done by carefully wrapping the crown before the worst cold weather arrives (circle the stem close to the base with gloved hands and then gently move them upwards (minding your eyes on the pointy ends!), the foliage will conveniently fold flat to the stem without damage allowing your assistant to tie it loosely. The plant can then easily be wrapped or covered in fleece or similar which should be removed in Spring when the weather improves.) Alternatively if grown in a pot, move it to sheltered area or unheated greenhouse if that’s easier. In warmer and coastal areas it might not be necessary.

Cordyline Australis Red Star benefit from a tidy up in spring, trim off any brown tips and the inevitable dead foliage that is produced close to the base as the stem develops.
