Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CORDYLINE australis 'Sundance'
Cabbage Tree, Cordyline, Dracaena, Sundance Cordyline
A New Zealand native, cabbage tree is a fast growing woody evergreen with long sword-shaped leaves. The cultivar 'Sundance' has green leaves with pink midribs and bases. The upper leaves are erect or arching; the lower leaves droop. Although it can form a small palm-like tree, it is often grown as a shrub or container plant. Large panicles of small fragrant white flowers appear on mature plants in late spring and summer, followed by small white blue-tinged fruits.
Cordyline thrives in deep, well-drained soil in full sun, and will tolerate alkaline soils. Grow as a single-stemmed plant or prune hard when young to force branching. Use it as an accent to provide a tropical effect.
