A cabbage tree (Cordyline australis) in flower is a wonderful sight. Cabbage trees are endemic to New Zealand and can apparently grow up to 20 metres.

    Michelle, I love cabbage trees (as you probably already know) and knew they were blooming about now… and was waiting with bated breath hoping to see some pics of these in bloom this year. You came through with flying colours! 🙂 Thanks!!

    Yay for the flowering Cabbage Trees, they are really going for it at the moment, much to my delight. The best is when you can actually get near the flowers, which smell beautiful. Fab post!
