Cordyline Australis

Cordyline Australis

This cordyline must be around 40 years old and it has survived everything. It even spawned a baby once which self -planted itself and looked like it would thrive as well. Sadly, we don't have room, so it had to go.

Great to see that yours has survived winter 2011, I had seven, all were affected by the harsh winter of 2011, I cut them all down to 12 inches, leaving the trunks in, 3 of them have grown back from the roots so far, the rest are still in the ground but no sign of growth, I am thinking... if they do not sprout off anything by Spring this year, then I count them as perished. :(((
