CABBAGE TREE

 
Maori believe that if cabbage trees flower in abundance, then it will be a long, hot summer. Regardless of that claim, cordyline australis is one of the most recognised natives - and will quite happily grow anywhere. The white cabbage butterfly is the only pest that could affect the Cabbage Tree - you will see the evidence in the new leaves easily. If the tree is small enough, sprinkle derris dust through it. Otherwise a systemic insecticide like Yates Success will be effective.
