Small shrub with wavy, grey leaves and clusters of rose-pink flowers, about 5 cm across. It takes harsh mediterranean conditions and frost to about -12 C. Cistus x Pulverulentus is a garden hybrid, obtained by crossing Cistus albidus x Cistus crispus. It has an extended flowering season, much longer than the average Cistus.

Chaya is a domesticated shrub, from Central America, traditionally used as a vegetable and for medicinal purposes. Today it is becoming more and more popular because of its healthy nutritional value. It is easy to grow in sunny drained locations, including in large pots.
Pink Passion (‘Seipin') was found by Paul Hummel of wholesale growers Seiont Nurseries as a sport on a batch of the old favourite Cordyline australis ‘Red Star' at a tissue culture laboratory at Myerscough College in Lancashire in 2002.
The plain green form is the ancestor of all ornamental forms of Cordyline fruticosa. It is more robust and hardy than most. It is widespread in the Pacific Islands where it is ubiquitously planted. This plant is very useful for cooking and for medicinal purposes. Leaves are used to wrap and cook all types of food, roots are edible too.

One of the best-looking modern cordylines! There are just too many colours in its leaves. Cream and chocolate stripes are intermingled with about anything between pink green and blue. 'Miss Andrea' also has a compact growth habit and it rarely exceeds 1 m in height as it branches from below, forming a round mass of tidy rosettes.
