Draceana Indivisa, more commonly known as spikes, is an upright annual with slim sword like leaves fanning outwards from the plant. It makes for a wonderful centrepiece or thriller in container and window box plantings, but also works well in beds, borders and for those with the space – an indoor plant. Spikes are commonly known as the cabbage trees in New Zealand where they can reach a height of 20 metres! But here they usually get no more than 2-3 feet tall in a season before dieing back in the winter. Both deer and rabbit resistant, heat and and drought tolerant, it is perfect for our area – it also has a mild salt tolerance and can be used for coastal gardens.
