    Miss Andrea wears her colors of olive green, grey with stripes of cream, purple on broad short foliage. Miss Andrea grows well in filtered and part sun locations in the garden. This is a good branching Ti and deserves a spot in every gardeners garden. Img_7620.jpg Img_7619.jpg Img_7619.jpg Img_7613.jpg

    This is a great plant for many reasons:
    - Easy
    - Beautiful
    - Lush
    - A great growth habit and size - adaptable for any garden.

    T00 bad it is apparently good tasting. Or else one pig just happens to like it. :)

    You do know the namesake for this Ti cultivar is actually Jeff Searle's wife.

    Moose - do you know if it was the recently passed Dr. Brown who named this one after Andrea?

    If I remember this correctly Jeff found this one in Thailand and brought it back to the USA. He showed the plant to Dr. Brown and he had not seen it before. Dr Brown then sent pictures to the Cordyline Society in Australia and they had no records of it. Dr Brown then asked Jeff to name it and Jeff named it after his wife Andrea.
