CORDYLINE AUSTRALIS - CABBAGE TREE

An icon of the New Zealand Landscape, it can be seen growing almost the length of the country. It has long sharp green leaves with a highly scented white flower and thick cork like bark. The head of the plant may fork with age creating multiple branches. Cabbage trees will grow in a range of soil type, being happy in a sheltered backyard or a coastal environment making it a very versatile tree for a wide range of planting applications.

Good Roots………

Roots are the anchors and feeding mechanism for a tree, if these are not right then the success of the tree is compromised.  What might look like a big strong tree may not be mirrored by it root system.  Icon Trees is one of the few nurseries that identify with this issue and dispose of these trees instead of growing them on to the next grade or supplying trees that will not successfully reach maturity.
