|Hi all, I've had this plant for awhile, but don't know the name of it. I believe it's a Ti plant, but the leaves are narrower than my other red Ti plant. It almost looks like a cross between dracaena and ti. The bloom though looks like a Ti. I looked through the plant database and Google, but didn't see anything exactly like this one. |

|It's blooms are pretty. I can't help with the ID. But I feel sure that it's a variety of cordyline. Some do have narrower or wider leaves than others. I'd love to get my hands on some dwarf plants with wide leaves.|

|Gorgeous! Looks like some kind of Cordyline to me too. It could be a cultivar of C. fruticosa, or another species. According to Wiki, there's either 15 or 24 species...|
@ScotTi might have some input.

|Deebie - thank you! I would love a dwarf variety too |
PurpleinOpp - thanks, I didn't know there were so many species! I'm sure it's something fairly common, as it came from one of the big box stores. It would be nice to have a name, but I'll just keep treating it like any other cordyline until then.

|Yes, that is Cordyline fruticosa (Ti plant). Looks like the cultivar named 'Sensation' AKA 'Hot Pepper'.|

|ScotTi! "Hot Pepper" is gorgeous and it looks very similar, although the new leaves on mine aren't as pink. Maybe mine needs more sun - it's getting Northern exposure now but no direct sun. Hmmm, might be time for a move... Thanks again!|

This is a great Ti for full sun locations in the garden here in FL. I have it growing in five different locations all but one in full sun. The more shaded location plant looks like yours. I will try to get a photo of the shaded grown plant for you. Let the flowers set seed and have fun growing Ti from seed, you will be surprised what you can end up with.

|Doesn't the species australis have narrower leaves than fruticosa? Maybe a variety of Cordyline australis? For comparison: Cabbage Palm (Cordyline australis 'Sunrise')|

|ScotTi - yep, your shade-grown one looks more like mine. I've already moved it to a southern exposure so maybe the colors will get a little deeper.|
