Not too sure if this is a yucca? I have to replace one that has died and need identification....it is situated in Exeter in the southern highlands if that helps!

It is a cordyline. Do an image search to find the exact one you want. ( It may be Cordyline Australis.)

Cordyline australis cultivar looks to be 'Red Sensation'. It is a native of New Zealand and as such most cultivars do very poorly or fail in the humid subtropics and tropics. In your area they should do quite ok as they are very cold resistant, they are grown ok in Southern England.
