Yummy! The leaves look much more delicate than mine.

This one is a miniature and at the moment it's only about 20 cms high. It's not supposed to get over a metre high.

i've never seen one of these before.....its so different to my cordylines.

I really love this variety - the fruticosa - and we're lucky to have Australia's specialist nursery for these right here in Queensland. At long last, all the great new variations are trickling through to the local nurseries.

I love ti plants! Snails and slugs love them here also.
You're so lucky not to have snails where you live.

We do get snails here Delonix - actually this is the first place I've lived here in my part of north Queensland where I've ever seen snails! - but they only come out during the 'wet' season and we get very few of them. I think I've only every seen 4 at one time here ... most of the time there's only one or two. I've always had a few cordylines but the ones available now are so colourful and interesting.

Very unusual. They seem to do well in this country. We have 4 hedgehogs that visit us at night so we don't get many snails in the garden.

LOVELY PIC NICE CORDYLINE.

Bernieh:

I wish we only had a few snail in the garden a year. I would be so happy! Snails are the number 1 or 2 problematic pest in CA.

There's literally hundreds of Cordyline varieties available in the nurseries here. If it wasn't for the snails I would have several varieties.
