The Cordyline fruticosa 'Pink Diamond' is a gorgeous broad-leafed cordyline with striations of pastel green, lemon green, cream and pink. This is a beauty indeed and an excellent choice as a feature plant or even to contrast against other plants. Also makes an excellent choice for mass-planting to give an elegant contrast or splash of colour to your garden. This plant can be pruned to induce branching, which will make the plant look dense and full, and even more gorgeous! But don't throw off the pruned part, just stick a few inches of the stem upright in some soil, and it will grow into another plant!
