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 page is based on research conducted in our nursery library and from online sources as well as from observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in the nursery's garden and in other gardens that we have visited. We have also incorporated comments received from others and always appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have some additional information, particularly if this information is contrary to what we have written or includes additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing  Cordyline 'Ahc Ahc'.
