Add a touch of the tropics to your garden with this striking, evergreen shrub. The Cordyline Negra produces large, yellow green leaves that mature to a rich, dark purple. It is the ideal garden shrub in warm climates, and it also makes a great indoor plant in cooler areas. Grow it in your garden, in a container on your verandah or in your favourite pot inside. Choose a warm, sunny to partly shaded position that has well drained, fertile soil.

Cultivate the soil before planting. Dig a hole that is twice as wide and deep as the container. Remove the plant from the container and place it in the hole, so that the soil level of the plant is the same as the surrounding soil. Fill the hole with soil, tamp down firmly, and water well, even if the soil is moist.
