Cordyline Red Sensation
The Cordyline Red Sensation has striking foliage, providing a tropical flair to any garden. According, this plant is perfect as a centerpiece in a container, but fares well as a stand-alone or as a part of a combination. Mature plants develop a palm-like trunk and fragrant white flowers. Where not hardy, grow the Red Sensation as an annual or winter indoors as a houseplant. In addition, the Cordyline Red Sensation will tolerate coastal conditions, however it must be protected from sea winds. In comparison to the Red Star, the Red Sensation has more of a purple color and slightly wider leaves as well.
About Our Plants
Our soil is custom blended and contains only the highest quality Canadian peat. We don’t try to cut cost with cheaper mixes. Additionally, all of our plants are grown with 100 to 180 day time release fertilizer so you won’t be running out of it just when the plants arrive. This is not the case with the quick release 30 day fertilizers that many other companies tend to use.
We do approximately 90% of our own liners. Since the cost is relatively inexpensive, we put twice as many liners in each container for many of the varieties. Accordingly, this makes for a much fuller plant.
All of our plants are given more than adequate spacing. For instance, most of the flowering bushes and trellis plants have 4 square feet of spacing. The Boston fern hanging baskets, for example, have 6 square feet. This allows our plants to grow as big and full as possible.
