CARE
Care Provide deep, enriched, well-drained soil. Thrives in full sun with shelter from harsh winds in coastal regions; in hot inland areas, benefits from regular water and light shade. Water regularly during first growing season to develop extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency. Apply fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.
HISTORY
Lore Cordyline indivisa is native to New Zealand and found at higher elevations that the closely related Cordyiline 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.
