Cordyline fruiticosa ‘Auntie Lou’

Cordyline fruiticosa ‘Auntie Lou’ (Cordyline fruiticosa ‘Auntie Lou’)

These plants are tops from my friend’s 10 ft (3 m) tall plants. I got them a month ago and they’re full of roots, already! I just stick them in a pot and keep them moist, very easy. Photo taken Oct. 27, 2022.

They’ll look better in the ground. I have to find a spot.

I've heard of that type. You dont see the Ti plants of color in the bay area. I have some type called Red Sister that does fine in a large pot. If I had the right spot in ground I would put it there . For now its best where it is in the driveway.

Looks like they are some nice plants going by their colour! 👍 Congratulations on getting them to root so quickly! 👏

I had a Harlequin variety ti leaf plant in Fremont. It has yellow, green pink and red in the leaves. It grew very well for years. The biggest problem were the snails.

Ti plants are the easiest plant to start and grow, as long as it gets well-watered.
