Cordyline stricta can grow indoors as a house plant, but it will also be perfect in the tropical-looking mediterranean garden. It looks like a miniature Cordyline fruticosa but they can take cooler temperatures and short frosts to -2 C with little or no damage.

According to http://www.anbg.gov.au :  "Cordyline stricta is already a popular ornamental plant. It can grow in sun or shade, and in shallow or deep soils. Though it thrives in moist conditions, it is very drought tolerant; so an established plant should require little supplemental watering. It is frost-tender, so in cold climates it should be placed under cover or near a northeast-facing wall. If it is damaged by frost or desiccation, it can resprout when conditions are better. Its tolerance of low light and water also make it an attractive and low-maintenance potplant for indoors or outdoors.

Cordyline stricta usually flowers in summer, though it can reportedly flower earlier in the year. It produces 8-10mm pale purple flowers on panicles 20-40 cm long. The flowers are followed by 10-15mm black berries."
