Plant description

cordyline rumba

Cordyline Rumba provides wonderful year round foliage colour.
 
Cordylines are happy to grow underneath trees, but brighter light levels will intensify the colours of the leaves. Wet feet can cause root rot and fungal diseases, but cordylines are generally easy to grow. As they grow taller, the lower leaves can die off and become untidy, so these should be removed. They withstand dry conditions, though their growth will slow.
Cordylines were used by the Maori people for food, they would roast the rhizome. Cordyline fruiticosa is known in Hawaii as the good luck plant, and the leaves are used to make their grass skirts.
