I took this picture of a colorful Dracaena at a nursery yesterday. It had no ID tag. I have found one with reverse variagation and one called 'Lemon and Lime' which is paler but haven't found this one. Any idea you experts?

It does look much like Dracaena deremensis 'Lemon Lime' Paul if the photo on plantoftheweek is correct.. I think colour and the width of colour bands can vary on these and this one is likely to be a widely sold cultivar.

Now comes the crunch! Yours looks more like Dracaena deremensis 'Paradisio', this site has many cultivars so other photos you see may not be correct! Even the site this is on has two different looking plants..
