Cordyline australis ‘Red Star’
at Digging Dog

Cabbage Palm


Cordyline australis ‘Red Star’ full sun  partial shade

Bold, bronzed and tropical-themed, 'Red Star's long sword-shaped dark burgundy blades are applauded as the most handsome and the hardiest of the red-foliaged Cordylines. Endemic to New Zealand and eastern Australia, this winning palm-styled evergreen slowly forges an upright half-hardy vigorous frame that premiers large panicles of small sweetly perfumed flowers. Cabbage Palm's year-round drama can be staged as a water-wise focal point for a dry garden or ample-sized container, where it appreciates light shade with occasional water during intense heat and shelter from harsh winter weather. 10–15´ x 5–8´.

Size: 10' 0"–15' 0" high x 5' 0"–8' 0" wide. Zone 8/9.
