yes, the phormium is more adaptable to hot and dry than the cordyline but probably not much more resistant to hot and wet. that said, apparently most of the native N.Z. flora is not especially adaptable to climate and growing conditions that are especially different from what it normally grows in---they generally not happy with either high summer heat or low winter temps.
