Cordyline terminalis

This lilly relative was first called Red dracaena and is native to India, Malaysia and Polynesia. There are many varieties of this specie in the market place. This one looks like it's on steroids. Many years ago a superior variety was sold with the name of Cordyline terminalis 'Ti'. It was so popular that all dracaena soon were called Ti dracaenas. I don't know the name of this clone, but it is fantastic.
