Cordyline Torbay Dazzler has striking green and cream striped pointed leaves and an upright habit. This Cordyline develops a trunk over time. Compared to other Cordyline australis varieties it is one of the lightest and brightest in colour. It is therefore well-suited to situations that require a light contrast against darker garden backgrounds or dark building colours. Grows approx 2.5m tall and 1m wide.

Cultural Notes: Torbay Dazzler prefers dry summer conditions when the humidity is lower. It is not suited to tropical climates. Some shade protection is necessary in hotter inland gardens. It is drought tolerant in coastal gardens but responds well to irrigation. It will tolerate -5 degrees C, and will survive -10 degrees C but this depends on the saturation level of the soil. It doesn't like cold and wet soil in combination. Source: © 2014 Sprint Horticulture Pty Ltd
