I'm thinking Dracaena.

Sanford, FL

Dracaena marginata tricolor.

San Francisco, CA

no, that is a Tradescantia spathacea cv. - long known as Rhoeo discolor.

edited to say: the plant on the left in the third pic. is indeed, the D. 'Tricolor'; the first two images and the low plant centered in the third are T. spathacea.
