Plant Happiness

To see me at my best

Grow me in a sunny spot and water me only when I dry out. I like well-drained and fertile soil.

History

Care

Cordyline australis likes to be planted in a sunny aspect or partial shade. Water it sparingly and let it dry out between waterings. Feed monthly with a balanced, liquid fertiliser from spring to late summe
