Red Cordyline

Stray from the ordinary and choose a Red Cordyline. The Red Cordyline is a small palm-like evergreen shrub and has a bit of everything. Its bright red leaves really make an impact and are perfectly matched with the traditional colours of love and romance. What's even better is that as the plants develop, they'll produce tall white flower stalks that rise above the plant and gives off a lovely delicate scent.
