Cordyline (Cabbage Palm)
One of the most popular plants for containers and well suited to a sunny terrace or patio. Cordyline or Cabbage Palm as they are commonly known are grown for their perfectly symmetrical shape that is produced from the long strap like foliage that radiates from the central stem. As the plants become more mature and more and more foliage grows, a clear stem will gradually be produced at the base and the plants may grow up to 3 metres or so tall (over a period of many years)
Younger plants look very effective amongst Summer bedding displays where they bring some welcome height, they are ideal for themed gardens, especially more contemporary designs and they look very effective in any situation where their architectural silhouette may be appreciated.
(You may also be interested in our range of Phormium plants (New Zealand Flax), these colourful plants are similar in appearance except their leaves always come from the base forming a clump instead of a single stem.)
