Cordyline australis added to wheelbarrow

Cordyline australis(cabbage or Torbay palm) is a striking architectural plant despite its somewhat unromantic common name. Initially an upright clump of long, sword-like green leaves, it slowly develops a tree-like trunk over time. Huge panicles of tiny scented creamy-white flowers may open on mature specimens in summer. Ideal for creating a sub-tropical effect in containers or borders.
Large frost hardy evergreen shrub or potentially large tree. Plant in well drained fertile soil in a sunny or partially-shaded position sheltered from cold winds. Container-grown plants need winter protection. Those in the ground can be decimated by severe winters although they will often shoot again from the base.

This plant has an RHS Award of Garden Merit.
