CORDYLINE – Cabbage Tree

(kor dih LYE nee)

Tried & True Cordyline


 Cordyline australis

Cordyline, also known as “Ti” or the “King of Foliage”, comes in many colours or combinations of colours including green, orange, pink, purple, red, yellow, cream and white. Because of its versatility and foliage interest, Cordyline is prized by many gardeners. They are upright and sturdy plants that can tolerate various light levels. Some species prefer almost full sun to show their best colours. For optimal growth, they require regular watering, but once established they can tolerate dry spells. They make gorgeous combination planters or an upright focal point in the landscape. Where temperatures fall below 15°F or 9°C, Cordyline should be grown as an annual.
