CORDYLINE

Commonly known as Blue dracaena, Dracaena palm

All make excellent architectural patio or pot plants. Some of the newer and more exotic leaf colours are best suited to the conservatory or greenhouse, at least over winter

Australis, the fast-growing New Zealand cabbage palm was indispensable to the Maoris to whom it was a source of food, textiles, anchor ropes, fishing lines, waterproof clothing and sandals.

It is a very important wildlife plant supporting insects and birds and mammals such as bats use it for shelter.

Genus of about 20 species of evergreen shrubs or tree-like, woody-stemmed perennials, the larger ones resembling palms. They are found on open hillsides and in scrub and open forest in southeastern Asia and the Pacific, including Australasia.

Many of the plants grown as C. australis are probably hybrids with C. indivisa, the Mountain cabbage tree.
