Our iconic native Cabbage Tree has a tropical and exotic air which has ensured its continued popularity in modern landscape design. If you have ever travelled to Europe or the UK you will be aware that gardeners there just can';t get enough of our Cordylines and they are literally "as common as muck" though that does not mean they should be under-rated in any way. The long strapy pointed foliage comes in shades of rich green right through to deep purple with a few "variegations" along the way. The sweetly scented flowers are always cream and produced in drooping panicles from about November to December.  

The common name of Cabbage Tree came about because the tender young shoots from the heart of the tree were used by NZ';s early settlers as a food source. Can';t say I';ll be trying them anytime soon as I have a hard enough job with plain everyday Cabbage. Maori also valued the stems and roots of Cordyline kirkii Te Tawhiti as a source of sugar or sweetener. So you can see that Cabbage trees though considered very "today" have played an important role in our early history.
