Southland’s very own palm tree. If ever there is a tree to provide texture and character to a landscape, it must be this. They look particularly good when grouped as an avenue or shelter belt but also add an element of individualism when planted on their own, especially within places where they will grow above lower plants around them. As you’d expect from Southland, it’s robust, hardy and suitable for the cold, breezy coastline or inland settings.
Suitable for: Group plantings, avenues and shelterbelts.
Features: Tolerates almost any conditions from full coastal to inland cooler areas, excellent texture plant.
Botanical Name: CORDYLINE australis
