Cordyline 'Design-a-line Burgundy ['Roma 06'] PP24,764 (Burgundy Cordyline) - A striking new tight clump-forming Cordyline 3 feet tall by equal width with fine-textured burgundy-colored weeping foliage. As with Cordyline 'Jurred' this plant is a hybrid of the larger Grass Tree (Cordyline australis) and the smaller Cordyline banksii - early reports from New Zealand indicate that 'Design-a-line Burgundy' is faster growing and is more rigid in the pot. We have not seen this plant flower yet but suspect it will have a similar flower to other Cordyline hybrids with this parentage which means tiny pale lilac flowers, with a jasmine-like fragrance that are held above the foliage on branched stems in the summer. Plant in full sun (along coast) to shade in a well-drained soil and water regularly. Hardy to USDA Zone 8-11.A great plant in the garden or as a potted specimen plant. Selected by Lyndale Nursery of New Zealand and Accepted with Plant Breeders Rights in May 2012.  This description is based on research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we visit. We also incorporate comments received and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have any additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Cordyline 'Design-a-line Burgundy'.
