Delicate pinkish-purple flowers of Japanese toad lily (Tricyrtis ‘Sinonome’ ) peek through the swordlike foliage of a purple-leaved cabbage tree (Cordyline australis ‘Purple Tower’). This fall pairing was designed by Kai Hinkaty for the Jane Watson Irwin Perennial Garden at the New York Botanical Garden..

    How about some info on that drop-dead gorgeous cordyline? I have tried with very limited success to grow phormium out here in the SW desert outside of vegas, and this cordyline is exactly the look I have been trying for. Who can tell me a bit about it - hardiness, sturdiness with extreme heat and moderate cold, etc etc...... It's a beautiful combo! We cannot grow toad-lily, but some of our penstemons would look beautiful with the cordyline.
