Hi Kaliope, Welcome!
That lovely plant looks like Cordyline but I'm not sure which cultivar. We have lots of them listed in the database with photos for comparison: http://garden.org/plants/search/text.php?q=Cordyline&button=

Thank you for the ID and the welcome! Smiling

I think it is the Cordyline Fruticosa Kiwi based on that link you provided.

Glad to be of help! Another member, @ScotTi grows a lot of beautiful Cordylines and he may be able to offer a more exact ID. I don't know Cordylines that well but your plant resembles

You are welcome! I gave a shout out to ScotTi so hopefully he will pop in with suggestions as to the exact cultivar if it's possible to tell.

Some kind of C. fruticosa, whether or not it's possible to attach a cultivar name.

Kaliope Welcome!
Looks to be the beautiful 'Brooke Maree' Cordyline fruticosa.
Here is mine for comparison...

Thank you ScotTi! The name is as beautiful as the plant itself. Will this survive as a house plant?

Kaliope,
What is your growing zone? I hope others who grow them as houseplants will chime in. I have no experience with Ti plants as houseplants.

They are as easy to keep as Dracaenas, with a bit more light, from what I've seen from having one (which is now propagated into about 5) for about 5 yrs. Except for its' first winter with me, it (the oldest, biggest stems) has bloomed every fall.
