They've already sold out of the black one, I noticed. I'm having to hold back until I figure out where I can grow some more Ti plants. But . . . oh dear, they have Brugmansias too . . .

Way to stimulate the economy, Scott, you enabler you!

Indeed! Gotta find a vaccine for these plant viruses I keep catching. I ended up ordering Keelys Golden, Prince Albert and Leisha. I didn't dare look at anything else.

Hetty,
You are going to like the plain green one. I stayed away from the plain green for many years. I finally purchased one last year and went ahead and purchased another this spring.
Anne,
'Prince Albert' is a very fast growing Ti. I think I started my log 3 years ago and the plant now is 9' tall. Another very fast grower is 'Rooster Tail'

purpleinopp said:Hi & welcome! You have a super Cordy collection! TY for sharing the beautiful pics.

A potted plant for me too. I only have one kind, so far. Still regret not buying a diff one I saw a couple yrs ago.

Two of my stems have buds that should pop open soon! ('Red Sister.')




Thanks for the welcome! If your flowers set fruit let it mature and plant the seed. The Ti from the seed will not look like the mother plant. You will get many different leaf types and colors. Here is one from my 'Red Sister'...

Ignorant question from a wanna be addict Smiling Is a Ti a Cordyline? Or vice-versa. This summer I had the opportunity to buy an awesome Ti in an 8 " pot at Lowes when they slashed prices from $ 29 to $ 5. When I made up my mind and went back, gone. I was like grrrr (same thing happened with a Hamelia patens at Walmart - 29 $ to 6. Went back and walked away again. Went back and gone. Probably just as well cause it would be just another lug plant.)

You guys ARE getting me quite anxious. nodding

David, Here is a page I did on another plant forum introducing people to the Cordyline and it will answer your question and then some. Smiling

David, you really do need to ask Santa for a greenhouse for Xmas . . . then you'd just have to lug all your tropicals into and out of the greenhouse each season change.

Heh. Unfortunately, I would have to heat it. My heating bill for my house runs 200 - 300 per month in a bad winter (Jan-feb 2014 for example). My wife barely puts up with me as it is. nodding

I tried to convince her to convert a screened in patio area to a sun room and she would have none of it unless "I did it right". No way - would have cost close to 5 K $.

WAIT! Maybe I could find a Used GH Smiling And tell her how much money I saved by buying a Used GH. Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing

Oopsy. Forgot the Kitchen. Smiling That is where the 15 orchids live. I just know they would do well in a sun room.

I know I do not need another plant addiction. Cordylines, Crotons, Broms, Palms and Orchids seems to be enough. But I never know what may strike my fancy next.

If you're into night bloomers there is always Trichosanthes! It's perennial here in zone 8.
