A bright variegated form.
My affection for the hardy Cordyline forms has been tempered by growing the more tropical species
earlier in my career. If I am honest these forms are just a dull substitute for the joy of a tropical greenhouse,
and I find it difficult to get over the feeling that I am settling for second best when I grow them. It is
a pity because some of them lift themselves from the dull into the unreservedly mediocre.
