What is this plant, and whats wrong with it

North Humberside, United Kingdom Gb

I have a plant in the garden ( see photo) I have lost the label so I don`t know what it is, some of the leaves are turning brown, what could be causing this? and what is the best feed for this plant?





It looks like a Cordyline, don't think it's a Yucca as the leaves don't look as chunky..

Wind is a common cause for the tips of the leaves to turn brown.

There isn't a specific feed for them, I'd just give it a liquid feed such as Miracle-Gro every now and again.

Yes, it looks like some kind of Coryline and yes, I'd say wind too.

This wind is a nightmare and damaged quite a few of my plants recently.

Think it may be New Zealand Flax Phil, a type of Phormium,....I bought one a few weeks ago...mine looks similar, but I've planted it in the garden in a sunny (laugh) aspect...I'm hoping it'll settle in and produce new leaves.
