Botanical Pronunciationkor-di-LI-ne in-di-VI-za
LoreCordyline indivisa is native to New Zealand and found at higher elevations that the closely related Cordyline australis (also native to New Zealand). it can purportedly tolerate cooler temperatures than C. australis, but should be overwintered in below freezing temperatures to protect tender shoot tips and non-woody stem regions from damage. Likewise, it does not withstand the higher temperatures that the related C. australis. does. C. indivisa does not produce prolific shoots when topped, like some the other cordyline species.
Average Size at MaturityGrows 20 to 25 ft. tall, 8 to 10 ft. wide; smaller when container grown.
Bloom TimeLate Spring
Design IdeasCordyline is great near swimming pools as it is almost litter-free and doesn't cast too much shade. Also an ideal specimen against a colored stucco wall or as a subject for night lighting. Perfect for postmodern architecture and tropical gardens.
