Cordylines are fairly easy to grow, will tolerate most soil types that are moist but well-drained, can be grown in full sun or partial shade and require a sheltered location. During the first year give it a good water once a week during drier spells, but once established it is fairly drought tolerant, although container grown plants will still require watering. Regular pruning is not required but dead leaves should be cut back as close to the main trunk as possible. If your plant is old enough to produce flowers these can be cut right back when they have died. Feed monthly during spring and summer with a balanced, liquid fertiliser. This variety is not winter hardy variety so prevent damage by tying up the foliage to reduce wind damage to the leaves and prevent water collecting around growing points which can cause rotting. Wrap the trunk with layers of fleece and place a 15cm (6in) layer of mulch, such as bark, over the root area.
