Family: Asparagaceae
Scientific name: Cordyline indivisa
Common name: Mountain cabbage tree
Origin: New Zealand

The mountain cabbage tree originally grew in the cool mountain forests of New Zealand and is characterized by its wide, two meter long, blue-grey foliage. The fibres of the leaf are very strong, and were used by the Maori for, among other things, fishing. The young stems are eaten as a vegetable.

The false stem can reach a height of eight meters in nature. In a temperate climate, the species can be kept as a container plant, which is why the plant will stay smaller. The minimum temperature lies around minus 10 degrees Celsius, but in a sheltered spot, the older plants are even more hardy.

Sowing description: Sow the seeds in sowing mix and let them germinate at around 20 degrees Celcius. Keep the soil constantly moist. Germination normally occurs in 8 to 12 weeks.

Sowing time: Whole year
Difficulty: Intermediate
Minimum temperature: -10 degrees Celcius
