looking good. as mentioned before think that the conditions in certain parts of coastal northern California up to extreme coastal s.w. B.C. are probably as close to optimum for cordyline australis as can be found in north America. artichokes seem to thrive on a certain amount of neglect (in the right climate)---the blue flowers that ultimately produce the "chokes" are striking and the grey foliage looks rather like some kind of ferocious fern, IMHO.
