|Lore||Cordylines are indigenous to Australia, New Zealand and the western Pacific region. This vast group is classified in the Agavaceae family with most members native to India, Australasia and Polynesia. The genus was named by French botanist, Philibert Commerson in the middle 18th century who derived it from the Greek for club, referring to the thick club-shaped root. The entire genus Cordyline is always subject to a great deal of confusion because of their similarity to both Phormium and Yucca. This is complicated by their former genus, Dracaena, Batistii, and Robinsoniana.|
|Average Size at Maturity||Moderate growing; forms foliage clump 3 ft. tall and wide.|
|Bloom Time||Late Spring to Early Summer|
|Design Ideas||Vibrant green strap-like foliage is excellent to set off large-leaved red, purple, and black foliage plants. It is also favored by smart modern garden designers who love its unique form and vibrant color for single specimens in ground or in simple geometric containers. Give this plant a rich Asian flare in decadent glazed ceramic pots and urns. An outstanding accent for patio areas and courtyards looking for something new and different. As with all cordylines they are a staple of the true Arts & Crafts era garden and California bungalow design.|
