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!
