Eventual Plant Size


Cordyline australis, the Cabbage Palm is not actually a palm, but fits in well with them. It is one of the easiest exotic plants to grow. It is very tolerant of wind and coastal exposure and can reach heights of up to 5 metres in the right spot. When mature, it will produce large panicles of beautifully fragrant white flowers, after which it will branch, creating a striking, bushy crown.

  • Eventual Size:Up to 5 metres in height.
  • Position:Full sun to partial shade tolerant of salt and wind.
  • Foliage:
  • Habit:Single trunk, with long, strap-like leaves and white flowers.
  • Soil:All soils, but avoid waterlogged areas drought tolerant once established.
  • Hardiness:Hardy in coastal and relatively mild parts of the UK (-5 to 1).
