Cordyline Red Star
The Cordyline Red Star Plant has striking foliage that provides a tropical flair to any garden. Furthermore, it is perfect as a centerpiece in a container, but does well as a stand-alone plant or as part of a combination. Mature plants will develop a palm-like trunk and fragrant white flowers. Where not hardy, grow the Red Star as an annual or winter indoors as a houseplant. In contrast to the Red Sensation, the Cordyline Red Star Plant has slightly thinner leaves that have more of a red color, hence they are less purply.
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.
