Cordyline Red Star, Cordyline australis 'Red Star', is sometimes called the Red Star Cabbage Tree.

It has burgundy red sword-like leaves and fragrant white flowers that top the stems in early summer, followed by small white or blue fruits.

Red Star is a fast growing woody plant native to New Zealand that can be grown as a palm-like shrub or a small tree. It is often grown as a shrub in a garden setting, or even as a houseplant.

It prefers deep, well-drained soil in full sun, and will tolerate alkaline soils, drought, and seaside gardens.

Red Star is a palm-like, sub-tropical tree that grows with an upright habit; its sword-like upper leaves remain erect while the lower leaves droop.

With age, it will branch to produce several heads, and its architectural structure makes a fascinating focal point.

Red Star cannot tolerate freezing or frosty weather so move it indoors in the fall in colder climates.

Fragrant!
