Cordyline Red Fountain commonly called the cabbage palm is a gorgeous weeping cordyline with deep maroon foliage. The stem branches out at the base but does not elongate further, forming a dense clump of cascading foliage. Once established, this is a very hardy plant suitable to various growing conditions including coastal and dry gardens. The graceful draping form of this plant makes it a fantastic choice for landscaping around pools or pouring over the edge of a raised garden bed, large planter, pathway, or border. It is also an excellent choice for mass planting, for which you can space them 60cm apart.
