They seem to deal with dark and cool weather very well

My largest cordyline in NY spends much of the winter in my unheated garage. It's the only plant that doesn't go dormant in there. It doesn't drop a single leaf and now has hundreds of blades. Even my farfugiums lost leaves and they are shade growing plants. Cordylines are pretty amazing. It's a shame that up north they only get used as spikes in containers, but during mild years they can even survive those conditions. I remember one batch that got pretty large in my neighborhood during a string of 2 or 3 mild winters before they bit the dust. They are awesome plants!
And your photos are unbelievable. Looks so beautiful out there!
