ANDONG MERAH : SHADE... I NEED YOU...

A simple foliage...
It's called Andong Merah or Hanjuang (Cordyline terminalis)
With a bright pink color.
Very striking in my green garden.


A beautiful color and pattern.


This foliage is really love part shady area.


Last February we had windy weeks, so I cut down some trees on my front yard.
We also had volcanic ash fell.



So without shading, the foliage look so poor. 
The volcanic ash layer make some damages on the leaves.


The leaves look dry on the ends.


The leaf color was faded.


I think this foliage needs any shade to make it beautiful again.
I should give....

    1. Thank you, Nicole. I don't know where should I move it, no space again. I only hope the Nusaindah tree and Chlerodendron can grow rapidly and give any shade for my Cordyline.

  3. Beautiful foliage in the garden, but indeed this one needs shade. We have the Cordyline as houseplant or in my case I have it in the greenhouse.

    1. On my climate, Cordyline only needs shade. Sometime I found Cordyline on the open area with the full sunshine, but the growth is pretty good. I think the layer of ash had a contribution on making the damage.

  4. I am shure you will take this beautiful plant to a better place and it will recover. We had very severe damages due to very cold winds. It hurts to see the plants damaged, but this is something you have to manange when gardening... Have a nice day!

  5. In the long run the ash will probably help things but until then it causes damage. Time will make it nice again.

    1. Yes, that's right. I have to be patient on waiting the new shade. I have did pruning on the damaged leaves, and now I have been waiting for the new leaves. I hope it doesn't need long time.

  8. Endah, I hope the plant will recover. It would be so beautiful if healthy. I wish we could grow it in our garden, but Ican imagine that it wouldn't trive at all.

    1. Thank you Aga. I hope so. It's a simple and easy growing plant. On subtropics this plant is usually grown as indoor plant. Hope you can grow it well.
