Cordyline Australis - 5

Cordyline Australis - 5 (Phoenix canariensis (Canary Island date palm))

.. in the rockery garden (the one in front; the other one in the back is phormium). I didn't realise that I had a Cordyline Australis already! I just bought it (from Morrisons, it was very cheap) and planted it last spring, not knowing this little thing is the same plant I adored very much! "You're my destiny," my cordyline!

You've laid your rockery out well, like it.

Oh, thank you Theo! I potted the little succulents last year before winter and kept them indoors. They are now out in the garden again. Oops, I have to cover the black ground cover with pebbles or something. They are efficient, but ... ugly.

Thanks TT and Flori! By the way, I found the big square stone (behind the canary palm) when I dug a hole in the place between the phormium and the bamboo. A friend said the stone was a part of a house, but what was it doing there? Mmmm. Anyway, I wanted to move it somewhere because it disagrees with other natural stones, but I just couldn't do it. Too heavy~~~ :( :( :(
