This plant is in our backyard, and we do not know what it is. Any ideas? Also, how should we cut it back? Thanks!

    Yes, I was searching for an ID and was stumped. I kept thinking it was in the Spanish Bayonet family, but couldn’t find any with that color. Thanks Hortiphoto.

    Looks like a bronze-leaf cabbage tree, which is a form of a species (Cordyline australis) that is native to my part of the world. You can see examples of various Cordyline species and cultivars on my website at Yours is quite like ‘Purple Tower’.
