Q.Why Is My Cordyline Burgundy Turning Green To Yellow? It Was Planted October 2020.

We added soil amendments and mulch. Tried fertilizing it. Tried deep watering and very little watering, but it’s getting worse. We live in Climate zone 9b; landscape designer stated these would do well even in hot conditions.

These plants do better with a little shade in hot climates. Although this plant is drought tolerant, it needs supplemental watering during extreme hot periods. Also avoid watering the leaves. If leaf spots develop, use a fungicide.
