Cordyline Plants

Name My Plant


Anonymous added on September 22, 2017 | Answered

I have 2 outdoor potted plants that have long spike /sword like leaves with a trunk sort of resembling a small palm tree. They stand about 3' tall out of their pots and one has burgundy leaves while the other has green/yellowish striped leaves. I feel they are not very happy this year but must identify them.v can you help?

You could have a Cordyline. There are varieties with spiky leaves, including burgundy. Check whether the picture matches:

Or a Dracaena:
