Cordyline 'Ahc Ahc' - A clumping variety of Cordyline that grows to 3 to 4 feet tall with weeping, variegated foliage in a blend of colors that starts out apricot and peach and matures to a mix of yellow and green with all colors present at the same time. We have not seen this cultivar bloom yet but it likely will have the tiny pale lilac flowers, with a jasmine-like fragrance, held above the foliage on branched stems that other Cordylines have. Plant in full sun to part shade in a well-drained soil with regular to occasional irrigation. We have not had it outside for a cold winter but likely this plant will tolerate temperatures down to 20 F. Cordyline 'Ahc Ahc' is our name for reversions out of tissue cultured plants of the showy Cordyline 'Cha Cha' that has the same base color foliage, but with bright pink margins for more information on this parent plant, see our listing at Cordyline 'Cha Cha' . This cultivar name is simply the parent plants name spelled backwards.  The information on this webpage is based on research conducted about this plant in our nursery library, from online sources, as well as from observations made of it as it grows in the nursery in containers, in the nursery's garden and in other gardens where we have observed it growing. We will also incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing  Cordyline 'Ahc Ahc'.
