Never heard of it, and a Google search brings up nothing except for one Australian nursery. I doubt that's a legit botanical name.
Tropical gardening in both Kaua'i windward Sunset H2/USDA 12b and Fallbrook Sunset 23/USDA 10b.

They look to produce purple berries much larger the the Aussy cordyylines.

I started some from seeds a few years ago and they do great up here on the northern California coast. They have taken some frost and done well but haven't been through a freeze. They grow pretty fast and look very nice, if you can keep the snails off them. They have thin trunks and form suckers from the bottom sometimes.
