I've just recently bought this at a grocery store that carried mostly dracaenas but this one was stunning. Now I just need to know what it's called!

Any help???

You nailed it Gary, some cultivars get really big, and the foliage is absolutely stunning!
I'm not very experienced with them but some of the monsters seem to bloom less...
I have a couple that are somewhere in between, it seems to have topped out at 3' and generally has 2-3 fresh blooms and 3-4 older less attractive blooms...it lacks the the veiny leaf texture that looks so nice, like the one pictured...
I'm hoping maybe it's still not mature but I'm pretty sure it is
