- Detailed Specification
The Cordyline australis 'Torbay Red', also known as the cabbage palm, is a delight to have in your garden. With red colouring and a unique upright growing style, it is a sight to behold. It is fairly easy to maintain and will thrive when kept well watered in its early establishment and when protected during extreme winter in wet areas.
The evergreen plant grows admirably in full sun or partial shade and should reach 3m x 1m. We recommend that you protect this plant from frost but all other aspects of this plant like pruning are unneccessary or are very light work.
Our British grown cabbage palm is a splendid fit as a border or container plant and it will be a marvel to look at all year round.
