Cordyline australis Red Star is a frost-tender, evergreen palm-like tree. It has a vigorous habit and forms an upright trunk over time. This decorative, subtropical beauty is crowned by dense clusters of dark reddish/bronze, sword-like leaves. The leaves are narrow and arching and have a tough, leathery texture. Cordyline australis is native to subtropical parts of New Zealand, where it grows in coastal areas, forest edges and high mountain forests, along river shores and swamps. It can handle drought and cold circumstances pretty well. It’s also great for patio containers as well as for landscaping. Cordyline australis is commonly known as Cabbage Palm or Cabbage Tree. Other internationally used common names for Cordyline australis are: Giant Dracaena; Giant Dracena; Grass Palm; New Zealand Cabbage Tree; Koolboom; Koolplant; Palm Lily; tī kōuka.
