    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 http://www.botanicalstockphotos.com/photos-cordyline-154.htm. Yours is quite like ‘Purple Tower’.
