Cordyline Australis ‘Red Star’ is a striking small evergreen tree with sword-like bronze-red leaves that are not just fascinating but extraordinary. This tree looks like a fountain in a garden pot, with arched leaves that can grow 0.6 metres long. Also known as the Cabbage Palm, it is one tough and hardy tree grown in a large container, on a patio or on a warm sunny border.
Once matured, this tree can reach a height of up to 4 metres. They produce dramatic ivory-white flowers that are sweetly scented and will attract bees or butterflies in a sunny afternoon. Native to Australia, Cordyline Red Star makes a seamless fit as an ornamental plant for an exotic garden.
They will thrive in full sun in a well-drained soil away from the cold winds in winters. A decent quality loam-based compost for container will ensure healthy growth of your Cabbage Palm. After the frost season, prune and remove frost-damaged branches until the fresh shoots.
Cordyline is a compact plant with evergreen, long arching leaves that keep your garden interesting throughout the year. Its cup-shaped flowers that bloom in summer are extremely attractive to bees. In autumn, the large panicles of small white flowers develop into berries.
Cordyline Red Star is a wonderful plant as it enhances the colour and shape of garden beds. New plants need care, but once matured, they will turn out to be just outstanding!
