Yesterday in Queens Park, Invercargill we walked to ‘The Stumpery’ along a path from the main gardens and found these beautiful variegated cabbage trees lighting up the late winter landscape. Cabbage trees are native to NZ with the usual form having green leaves. These are probably Cordyline australis ‘Albertii’, a stunning variegated form with a hint of pink.
