Palm Lily, Cordyline cannifolia

  • This shrub usually grows close to the ground, but occasionally a spindly trunk grows up to 3 or 4 meters.

  • It has long leaves with a prominent mid-rib, and venation that is almost parallel but runs at a slight outwards angle.

  • There is a raceme of small pink and slightly tubular flowers with yellow-ended stamens. These are followed by orange to bright red fruits.

  • This is a common shrub of the understorey of tropical rainforest and wetter schlerophyll woodland in tropical and eastern Australia (Hyland et al 1999).
