Per Irene Ngoo of Min's Garden @tropicaljungle in Singapore:
"This is a plant that carries my country’s name. Cordyline fruticosa ‘Singapore Twist' is a tropical shrub with broad green leaves, burgundy undersides and bright pink stems. The leaves form an elegant, flattish fan as it grows, making this a great conversation piece. It can grow to about 8 feet high and 3 feet wide and can tolerate full sun in the tropics"
