Cordyline australis (Cabbage Tree) Details

Cordyline australis, commonly known as the Cabbage Tree, is a hardy, medium-sized, New Zealand native tree which is grown for its showy foliage. It grows with a solitary trunk and hosts rosettes of long and lush, dark green leaves. The foliage is complemented with cream coloured, fragrant flowers in spring which are followed by white-blue berries that attract birds. It will eventually reach 8 m tall and 3 m wide, performing best when planted in full sun or partial shade on a well-drained site. It is tolerant of coastal conditions, heavy and wet soils, dry periods, frost, and exposed positions. The Cabbage Tree is commonly grown as a specimen or planted in clusters. The simple form and great aesthetics of Cordyline australis allows it to blend with almost any planting.
