|Could you give me some more information on the plant which I own. I know it is a cordyline, and it has just flowered for the first time this year. The little white flowers on the top have now died off. I would like to know if i just leave the flowers or cut it of altogether. The plant has grown about 8ft to the tip of the white flower. Will it grow any bigger?

|The most commonly grown cordyline is Cordyline fruticosa, also called Ti Plant. It can grow 15 feet high and 8 feet wide. The foot-long flower clusters are either white or red. When yours has finished blooming, cut off the spent floewr cluster. Best wishes with your cordyline!
