Meanwhile, on a recent Molbak's Visit (more on that in another post) I spied this beauty.
Falling in love again. Never wanted to.
What am I to do?
I can't help it.
Pink, red, and cream variegated foliage makes my socks roll up and down in excitement.
Much as I admired Cordyline fruticosa 'Exotica' I left it at the nursery because I'd no experience growing them and didn't want to make more expensive compost with my house plant growing skill.
Have you grown any of the large leafed cordylines inside? Where would you rate them on the you- can't-kill-me-with-a-weed-eater-and-a-gallon-of-round-up to I'll-die-in-the-car-on-the-hour-drive-home scale?
If it's a hard plant to kill, I may have to return to the nursery.
What to do, what to do...
