From the rich exotics of New Guinea comes Caruba Black, an exciting new foliage plant, rich in colour and compact in growth. Its flat, strappy leaves are shorter than other cordylines and its growth more compact, reaching 40cm high and 20cm wide in pots, slightly larger in ground. .

It has vivid shiny purple-black foliage and scented white flowers held on spikes above the foliage. In tropical and sub-tropical areas, plant in filtered sunlight in the garden for stunning colour combinations and foliage contrast.
