Fab Foliage Friday (Plus A Few Minutes)
Spikey stuff sends me. Especially spikey stuff on a stick. Like cabbage palm, ti plants or cordyline--whatever you wanna call 'em-botanically Cordyline australis 'Red Star'. Those long, slender leafy blades cut a dashing look in almost any combination. And what's fun about cordylines is that after a few years overwintering a couple of specimens , you've got stuff at varied heights, and there always seems to be one sized right to fit in almost anywhere. Or combine a grouping for an explosive, fireworklike effect.
