Cordyline fruticosa 'Caruba Black'


The Cordyline fruticosa Caruba Black is a perennial plant that provides great year-round foliage colour with his dark purple/black foliage. This is a great specimen plant, for massed plantings, ideal for container growing and looks fantastic in a tropical garden. 

Cordylines are happy to grow underneath trees, although brighter light levels will intensify the colours of their 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, but their growth is slower.
