Sizing guide
Cordyline australis, commonly known as the Cabbage Tree, is an evergreen tree native to New Zealand. Growing this tree is relatively easy. It prefers a sunny location with well-drained soil.
Plant the seedlings or young plants in spring or early summer, ensuring they have enough space to develop. Water regularly during the first year to establish a strong root system. Mature Cabbage Trees can reach a height of 20 meters (65 feet), but they can be pruned to maintain a desired size.
The tree features a stout trunk with long, strap-like leaves that form a tufted crown at the top. Its leaves are typically green or reddish-purple, depending on the variety. The Cabbage Tree produces creamy-white, fragrant flowers in summer, followed by small, blue-black berries. It is a beautiful and resilient addition to any garden or landscape.
The mature tree typically forms a single trunk topped with a tuft of long, sword-shaped leaves that resemble a cabbage head, hence its common name. These leaves can grow up to one meter (3.3 feet) in length and create an attractive, architectural display in the landscape. Prune any damaged or dead leaves regularly to maintain the tree's health and appearance.
