    Pineapple leaves margins are serrate while Cordyline are smooth also as mature specimens have woody trunks. Although I’m still leaning toward the Cordyline, other clues are needed to tell more. Perhap, you could give us an update as yours grows more. Check out the included link for pineapple genus. Best wishes to you Mellisa! Laura

    I looked up bromeliads. It almost looks like a pineapple plant. What do you think?

    Thank you for your assistance. I looked at the references you suggested. This plant grows out from the center. So I wonder if it is in the Cornelia group? It’s not a grass. The lead is fibrous & stiff. Appreciate you & your help.

    I wish I could see the side view and closeup of the plant’s base. I’m can’t tell for certain if this is a type of Bromelia, Phormium or Cordyline? Although I’m leaning toward Cordyline, flowers are needed to confirm for these suggested ID. For now check out some cultivars in the Cordyline genus from these included links. Best wishes!
