Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

Cordyline ‘Charlie Boy’ is a striking architectural shrub which bears long strap-shape leaves variegated with pink and burgundy. As the plant matures, a tall, bare stem emerges creating a tree-like appearance crowned with spikey leaves. Cordyline are low-maintenance evergreens providing all year-round colour and form. They make excellent focal points as container grown or border specimens and combine well with vibrantly coloured perennials. This resilient evergreen is perfectly hardy in milder parts of the UK and is a particularly popular choice in coastal gardens for its tolerance to sea air, dry soils, and exposed sites. Height: 300cm (118”). Spread: 100cm (39”).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Grow on in frost free conditions and acclimatise to the outdoors over 7-10 days before planting out. Grow Cordylines on fertile, well drained soil. Choose a sheltered position in full sun. Cordylines are particularly well suited to mild coastal locations but do enjoy a fertile soil, so it is well worth incorporating some well rotted manure into the soil when planting.
Feed and water regularly until fully established. Once established, Cordylines need little attention, but will require some winter protection should temperatures dip below-5C (23F). In cold areas it may be preferable to grow Cordylines in large patio containers that can be moved undercover during the coldest months.
