Cordyline 'Zumba' PP27,515 (Zumba Dance Series Cordyline) - A very showy Cordyline with multiple upright stems holding glossy bright pink narrow arching leaves that have dark cherry red margins. With time a main trunk up to 5 feet tall can form and in summer appear small cream flowers in a branching inflorescence. Plant in full sun (along coast) to shade in a well-drained soil and water regularly to occasionally. Hardy to 20 F. Suckers from the base so larger stems can be cut back to maintain a lower growing plant reminiscent to a New Zealand Flax (Phormium sp.). Cordyline 'Zumba' was bred by Peter Fraser in Kihikihi on the North Island of New Zealand in 2006 and is the result of crossing the smaller suckering red Cordyline 'Red Fountain', itself a hybrid between Cordyline banksii and C. pumillo, with the taller yellow variegated Cordyline australis 'Albertii'. It is part of the Dancing Series of Cordyline which includes 'Jive' and 'Cha Cha', which we have grown and also 'Can Can', 'Pasa Dobla', 'Polka', 'Salsa' and 'Samba' and it received US Plant Patent PP27,515 on December 27, 2016.  The information on this page is based on our research that has been conducted in our nursery library and from online sources as well as from observations made of this plant as it grows in the nursery, in the nursery's garden, and in other gardens where it has been observed. We also incorporate comments received from others and always appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have additional information, particularly if this information is contrary to what we have written or includes additional cultural tips that might aid others in growing  Cordyline 'Zumba' PP27,515.
