Pink Leafed version of the Hawaiian Ti plant. This is part of the Cordyline series of plants. Most of this series of plants have the tell tale trunk.
Green Leafed version of the Hawaiian Ti plant. You can see from this picture this is not a leggy plant.
The pink version of the Hawaiian Ti plant add a bit of color to the Dougherty Garden. What I love about this plant is that if somebody wants to grow one of these plants, all I have to do is make a cutting and dust the bottom with some rooting hormone and pot it up and in a few weeks we have a new Hawaiian Ti plant. You can even take this cutting and place the cutting in a glass of water and in a short operiod of time, roots develop.
