|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.|
