Just bought several Red Star Spikes at Home Depot & no one could tell me if it is an annual or perennial-any help? Thanks!

Red star spike (Cordyline baurei) is a perennial but it is only rated as cold-hardy in USDA zones 9-11.  According to your zip code you are in USDA zone 7, so move it indoors before the threat of frost. If left outdoors, it would die, making it an annual, so that may be where the confusion is from.
