    I can never resist buying, clipping, or trading for a Ti I don't yet have. I never tire of the seemingly endless colors and shapes.

    So to check this new forum software and the ease of uploading photos, what better subject matter could there be?

    Note that up to four photos can be uploaded at a time, and no resizing is necessary. The software should take care of everything. Depending on the size of photos, uploading four at a time may take up to a minute.

    Please register and give it a try.

    I absolutely love all the colors you have in your garden Dean. A few cordylines and aroids make a huge difference in a garden.

    Nice variety of shapes and colors in your collection. Somehow they remind me of bromeliads...

    It's funny how some Cordyline cultivars are popular all over. I recognise quite a few of those in your photos and have some of them growing at home. Will I's Gold is always a favourite.

    Does anyone know much about starting these from seed. I have heard it is a "grab bag" as to what you will come up with.

    We have recently started a few dozen from seed off of colored ones, and although they are only an inch or two high, most are just plain green. Will the color come later, or do most of them revert back to the green form?

    Dean , I know several people up here who have grown some very stunning seedlings .
    It is just luck and numbers , grow thousands but be selective on what plants you harvest seed from .. It can take a few years before true colours come out , and then only in winter . But definetly worth the effort if you have the seeds and space .

    Sorry for the tiny pics but these are very old from my dinky little Kodak digicam..
    Think they are all seedlings grown by Pirrie Sargent .
    The last is 'RedSar'

    Thanks for the info Mike. I was curious because out of the 2-3 dozen we have sprouted, they are all green, except for one. Despite the fact they all came from "colored" plants. I guess as in all things gardening ------ patience, patience, patience. :)

    Here are two pictures of the parent plant and two pictures of the only non-totally-green seedling. This seedling had a hint of red from the very first leaves... I'm hoping it will be interesting.:D

    They are nice... I always like cordylines. I used to have them in Gove, but haven't got into them again with this garden, as I still have limited shade and most of them require some sort of protection. I have some though, which has colour up nicely.

    Regards, Ari :)
