Plant of the Week: Cordyline ‘Cherry Sensation’ is a palm-like evergreen typically growing four feet tall or greater with age, with the possibility of producing multiple heads as it matures. This attractive variety features strap-like, gracefully arching foliage in shades of cherry pink and red. Showy spikes of sweet scented white flowers bloom in late spring to summer. This plant thrives in coastal full sun exposure, and should be placed in full sun to partial shade inland. It will tolerate coastal conditions, but should be protected from direct ocean winds. While potentially drought tolerant once established, moderate watering will further enhance it’s appearance. Hardy to 10F. Cordyline ‘Cherry Sensation’ is available this week in two gallon containers.
