Picked up this girl at a nursery, they said she's probably a Dracaena but I'd like to know what kind, she's so visually appealing

It looks more like a cordyline than a dracaena to me. Cordylines want a lot more light!
Maybe we should get a second opinion...

Maybe cordyline fruticosa? I'm not the best at knowing the differences between cordylines. Perhaps someone else on here will be able to say.

The only problem is that it's it's so tall and the stems are so intricate together, I'll see if I can get a better pic

@ScotTi grows a lot of Cordylines, perhaps he can identify it.

The coloration is there for Miss Andrea but the leaf shape is wrong.

You definitely have a Cordyline fruticosa. Looking at these new photos I believe you have 'Cameroon'.

I knew that @ScotTi would be able to help!

It does indeed look like Ti Plant (Cordyline fruticosa 'Cameroon')
