Also known as Hawaiian Ti plants, Cherry Sensation is a new and improved color update that will certainly turn heads! In spring, white blossoms form and call pollinators from far and wide! The white spikey flower heads are quite unusual and create a dramatic contrast to the foliage.

A broadleaf evergreen in warmer growing zones, northern gardeners can take advantage of this exotic beauty as a thriller and focal point annual, or Cordyline can be brought into a greenhouse or enclosed patio for the colder seasons!

How to Use Cherry Sensation Cordyline In The Landscape

A bold shock of color when added to any garden landscape or container, these small shrubs can be grown in planters on porches or balconies or as accents around your pool or patio! The burgundy and pink stripes go with many other plants yet stand out at the same time!

Plant in the ground as a bright burst of juicy color as a foundation or border row, or as low privacy around seating areas and outdoor rooms, or as property definition. Tolerant of salt and salty wind, these tolerate roadside conditions and work beautifully along a driveway.

Use as a fantastic focal point and specimen plant, especially when mixed with green broadleaf evergreens or skirted with cascading groundcovers. Tuck into a mixed border or as a thriller plant throughout your garden beds to inject year-round color!

Tolerant of wet soils, these are fantastic additions to use around water features, streams or ponds!

Tips For Care

Hardy in warm USDA growing zones of 9 through 11, these tropical beauties tolerate full sun or even a touch of partial shade! In the more intense heat of the hotter climates, these will appreciate some afternoon relief from the heat.

Plant in moist soil that is well-drained with adequate fertility and you’ll see fantastic, structured growth as these grow to their 4-5 feet in height and width. Maintain a moderate, yet consistent moisture throughout the year for best results. Once established, Cordyline can even tolerate wet soil.

With easy care and low maintenance, you’ll enjoy the convenience these broadleaf evergreens provide you as well as the shock of color they lend the garden!

Cherry Sensation Cordyline will provide an amazing color boost to your garden and landscape this year
