Plant / Product Features:
Tall straight trunk and densely rounded head. Each stem on this iconic NZ native is crowned by a rosette of strappy long leaves. Dense panicles of creamy fragrant flowers appear late spring to summer. Withstands waterlogged soil but if planting in warm, humid areas keep the root zone cool by mulching or under-planting. Good coastal option. Cabbage tree disease caused by bacterium spread by sap-sucking insects such as the passion vine hopper. Leaves susceptible to damage from the cabbage tree moth. This can be controlled using a systemic insecticide but the damage is aesthetic. When under stress, the leaves can also get a form of rust that can be treated by spraying with copper oxychloride. Best not planted adjacent to lawn areas as leaves will clog the blades.

Landscaping Uses:
Single specimen or group plantings. Simple form allows it to blend with almost any planting. Can be grown in coastal or swampy or dry exposed situations. Good for shelter and soil stabilisation. Good in pots.

NOTE: All prices exclude GST.
