LoreCordylines 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 MaturityModerate growing; forms foliage clump 3 ft. tall and wide.
Bloom TimeLate Spring to Early Summer
Design IdeasPair with plants that have bright green or gold foliage for exceptional contrast. Situate to brighten and add drama to shaded or dappled sun areas. Cascading strappy leaves can create a fountain effect that is highly prized in garden and container plantings. It is favored by modern garden designers who love its unique form and color for single specimens in ground or in simple geometric containers. Use decadent glazed ceramic pots and urns to give this plant a rich Asian flare.
