Anyone grow these?
A favourite of hybridisers, they need lots of sun to give them the colour. I have a few in my collection, but can't upload cuz having some problems with Photobucket. Will do so later.
Like plumerias, most of these guys do not have names attributed to them when you buy them, so the hard work of the hybridiser is lost.

if you can get the cordyline book of dr frank brown you will see hundreds of named varieties there. specially those that come from florida, hawaii and thailand and also some very nice ones from israel and belgium if i'm not mistaken

Truly breathtaking HortVet, your plants are collector's items as I dun see them planted by NParks!

Anyway I like them too but I cannot grow them since Cordylines need lots of light... :cry:

The colors become brighter and dark colors deeper when the plants are growing in cooler temperatures. Just an observation.

I hope the colours stay vibrant, otherwise end up with all in a dull red tone HAHAHA goodness, what a nightmare then. I guess that's why Hawaii is such a great spot for them.
Yes, cordylines are high light intensity plants, so can't really do well indoors. Probably can survive ok though....
Please Wilson... :blush:/> they are nice but not made out of gold (I wish !than i won't have to work anymore!)
I dunno what those white spots are.. when I took the photos I thought they were contaminants, cuz the plants are located near each other and are by the roadside. I shall have another look later..
Anyone seen a white or cream cordyline? Does it exist?

guess u have little dalmation cordylines (woof!)...hahas... :blush:/>

hmm...a creamy cordyline...cream exists in little streaks here and there (like hair highlights... :grin: ), but havent seen it being in large patches...most cordylines we see are darkish. a common non darkish one is the lime and creamy white coloured 'kiwi'.

[size=18][b]anyways, heres a lil tip for budding cordyline growers...you all can go to Jimei and Far East's coldrooms for cut flowers at Thomson and buy the cordyline used as cuts, then plant them if the foliage attracts you. its cheaper than buying potted plants

the white spots were water stain marks- maybe some white watery stuff sprayed over the pavement- rubbed off after the last few days' rains :grin:

I've seen other forms with this colour combination- reminds me of chocolate and milk swirl cookies or drink :grin: but, yours has a very lovely rounded shape to the leaves. NICE!!

How they hybridize Cordyline? Is very dumb question, I know. :hitmyself:/> It looks to me more like a cutting plant than something you'd propagate from seeds. :hitmyself:/> More n more new types keep coming out. Dun quite understand this. Anione here hybridize Cordylines? Not that I m into hybrids. Just want understand this better. Same with the so many types of new varieties of Aglaonemas, Anthuriums and Philodendrons that keep coming out. They cross-pollinate the plant, actually collect seeds to propagate and TC? Is dat right? I have seen them fruits n seeds, but none of the seeds I have collected from them ever germinated.

I'm resurrecting this thread as I'm thinking of using some of these to do up an outdoor vertical garden with afternoon sun and morning shade :-)
Looking at all the unique ones here.

This is indeed a good tip :-) So I assume they can be easily rooted in soil or water too.
