Cordyline fruiticosa, the Hawaiian Ti plants, are a great way to add color to the garden. They easily acclimate to filtered light growing conditions in our area but can be solely acclimated to coastal sun. Most don’t get much over six feet tall. They have thin trunks and can take a freeze with some damage. Severe cold will kill them. Leaf color varies from pastels to reds to green and black. Shown here two different varieties of Hawaiian Ti plants that just arrived. These two are quite different from each other – one red and the other pastels. Remember, availability of each type changes ever week or two. Garden photos are of the species, not these particular varieties. I’m showing two varieties below.
