Cordyline fruticosa Rumba is a lovely tropical foliage plant, with smokey burgundy leaves and striking pink margins that branch off a central stem. They form in a manner similar to Dracaena (they are both members of the same family), with their lower leaves dying to encourage new growth as the plant develops. Cordyline fruticosa is also sometimes known as Cordyline terminalis, or even Dracaena terminalis. Their common names include Good Luck Plant, Ti Tree and Baby Doll Ti.
