Cordyline australis

Cordyline australis growing in Dundee

Cordyline australis can add a touch of the exotic to the small garden and is fairly hardy. This small garden tree can put on a few feet of growth each year in good growing weather and will often go to 20 feet or more.
However our unpredictable Scottish climate can give us the occasional severe spell of cold winter weather when minus 20 F. has been recorded. This will kill the Cordyline down to ground level, but it often re-emerges a year or two later as a multi stemmed plant.

It is very popular in the west and north coastal areas where close proximity to the warm influence of the gulf stream ensures that frost is seldom a problem.
