Plant details

Cabbage palm, Cordyline australis is a stunning foliage plant, bearing spiky, variegated leaves with bold cream stripes and margins. A native of New Zealand, it makes an excellent container plant for patios and elsewhere.

Cordyline australis 'Torbay Dazzler' is a particularly lovely cabbage palm, bearing sword-shaped leaves with green and cream stripes. It's perfect for growing in pots or as part of a mixed herbaceous border – particularly in tropical planting schemes – and in mild regions it will grow into a small tree. Mature plants produce branches of sweet-smelling, ivory-white flowers in summer, which are extremely attractive to bees. Its autumn berries are loved by starlings.

For best results grow Cordyline australis 'Torbay Dazzler' in a sunny, well-drained spot away from cold winter winds. Alternatively grow in a large container which you can move indoors in autumn.
