A range of varieties with elongated strappy foliage. One variety, Cordyline Australis, is known as the ‘Cabbage Palm’. A type of starchy meal was once made using pulp from the centre of the plant. This practise reportedly inflicted a certain amount of intestinal discomfort upon early Australian settlers, perhaps to the amusement of the Indigenous Australians from whom the practice derived. The Cordyline is now more commonly used as an Architectural foliage accent plant and an interesting array of coloured forms are available.
