Cordyline Renegade is a dwarf Cordyline that only grows to 1m x 1m with a compact habit. It has glossy dark chocolate broad leaves up to 1m long that weep with age giving the plant a very smart look. This is complemented by strongly scented cream coloured flowers that are borne from many panicles above the foliage. A great architectural plant for all gardens, Cordyline Renegade makes an excellent feature plant and looks fantastic in a decorative pot.
