Ti Plant, Cordyline terminalis

Though usually found in a wine red color, ti plants do come in different shades.  Red Sister, Black Magic, Kiwi, Bolero, and Peter Buck are some of the popular varieties.  Keep the plants moist to prevent the leaf margins from browning.

These ti plants add color and height to the planting.  The dwarf fakahatchee grass and flax lily frame red ti.
For a tropical effect, mix ti plants with heliconias, ginger, and crinum lily.
