Looks like the cordyline I bought from the garden centre, was supposed to be red but it looks exactly like yours!

I agree with Allison it does look cordyline-like, but you know my ID skills are lacking😂. @allhop74

Thanks very much everyone, that's what I thought but I've never planted one so it's a bit puzzling but I'll go with that 👍 I don't think it's kniphofia Joan as I have a couple and they don't look like this 🤔 @allhop74 @Auricula @joanboston @Cazx @KOutdoors

@pelly yes I agree it’s cordyline otherwise known as the Cabbage tree in Australia. In Devon it’s called the Torbay Palm. So lots of names for one palm.

Thanks very much Joyce. I’ve never heard it called Torbay Palm. I like that name much better than Cabbage Tree 😂 @joycemb
