Cordyline australis 'Torbay Dazzler'
Cabbage Palm. Cordyline austalis is a stunning foliage plant, bearing spiky, variegated leaves with bold cream stripes and margins. A native of New Zealand, it makes an excellent container plant for patios and elsewhere. Cordyline australis 'Torbay Dazzler' is a particularly lovely cabbage palm, bearing sword-shaped leaves with green and cream stripes. It's perfect for growing in pots or as part of a mixed herbaceous border - particularly in tropical planting schemes - and in mild regions it will grow into a small tree.
Plant in any good garden soil, grows well in pots and containers. Easy to care for.
Water thoroughly, or stand pot in a container of water for half an hour before planting. Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Remove the pot, place the plant in the hole so that the root ball is level with the surrounding ground and refill, firming if necessary. Keep well watered in dry weather. Feed in spring with a good, general fertiliser.
