The Cordyline John Klass Red is a striking evergreen ornamental plant which will add a vibrant burst of colour to the home and garden all year round.

The Cordyline John Klass Red provides a contrast of lively shape and colour, and delivers an organic feel to any home.

 Keep well-watered but avoid water logging. Quite tolerant to dry conditions but this will restrict its growth.


Cordylines will thrive in most soil conditions but prefer well drained rich soil.


Cordylines are quite low maintenance and particularly hardy, shrubby natured plants. They should be pruned to their desired height and to encourage further growth. Cutting all foliage is fine as the plant will regrow from the stem. Feed with organic fertiliser in spring and autumn.
