Product Description

The dazzling leaves of Cordyline ‘Southern Splendour’ will add a tropical touch to your garden with their stunning colour and bold shape.

The leaves are olive green with broad, bright pink edges and narrow pink stripes that look absolutely amazing, especially with sunlight shining through them, and the architectural shape makes it a great statement plant on a patio, terrace or balcony as well as in the ground.

Initially the evergreen leaves form a dense clump at ground level, but eventually Cordyline 'Southern Splendour' grows to form a small, palm-like tree reaching over 3m (10ft).

Evergreen and hardy to -5°C (23°F), this cordyline looks fantastic all year-round, adding colour to your garden when all else begins to fade. We do suggest though using frost protection fleeces or wrapping or bring your plant into a garage or porch during the coldest winters.

Supplied as an established plant in a 17cm pot.

Care Guide

Planting Advice for your Cordyline 'Southern Splendour'

  • Shrub roots generally tend to spread out rather than down, so dig a planting hole 3 x wider than the roots of the shrub you're planting and mix some well-rotted compost or manure with the soil from the hole and use this to re-fill one the shrub is in place.
  • Before planting soak container-grown shrubs thoroughly and allow to drain.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots and add Mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help plants establish quicker.
  • Place your shrub in the hole at the same level at the pot and refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball and water in well.
  • Mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.
  • If you’re planting into pots, place some old rocks, stones or gravel in the bottom of the pot for drainage and ballast.
  • Use the best compost you can buy such as our premium professional compost along with some sand or grit for drainage.

Aftercare Advice:

  • Water plants freely during the growing season, and sparingly in winter.
  • Feed monthly with a balanced, liquid fertiliser from spring to late summer.
  • Top-dress or pot up in spring.
  • Although frost hardy, young Cordyline plants, and also coloured varieties are more prone to cold damage.
  • This can be prevented by tying up the foliage to reduce wind damage and prevent water collecting around growing points and causing rotting.
  • In areas prone to severe winters, wrap the trunk with layers of fleece and place a 15cm (6in) layer of mulch, such as bark, over the root area.
  • Move container grown plants to a frost-free location, such as a greenhouse, during periods of cold or wet weather - temporary shelter in a shed or garage will do.

Pruning Advice for Cordylines:

  • Pruning is not normally necessary, just remove any dead or damaged leaves with a sharp pair of secateurs.
