Cordyline type?

Noticed this Cordlyine at local public gardens and it looks a bit different from a standard Australis, what type of cordyline could it be?

Looks like a standard Australis to me, perhaps needs perking up a bit though. Possibly either dry or malnourished due to location. Trachycarpus' tend to droop more in shaay spots too.

Not sure, leaves look wider, maybe an Indivisa?

I have australis with an orange midrib, but I also have plain green ones from the same seed source. Also, some with longer leaves than others. They are a very variable species so I'd say it's a bog standard australis in the picture

But its foliage is a silvery colour as well.

It looks to me like an Australis...........and a weedy one. These do tend to be thin and drawn when planted in the shade. Please don't confuse this with an Indivisa!

Yep looks like a C. australis growing in an unsuitable spot...

A typical C. australis when grown in shade.
