Need help with identifying a plant

ownhmMarch 4, 2014

Hello GardenWebbers,
I need help with identifying a plant we like - we found the picture on houzz.com - unfortunately there is no reference to the name of the plant. As you can see, it is multi-trunked with spiky leaves. Can anyone help identify the species or at least help narrow it down?

Thanks in advance!

Very impressive specimens of Spanish Bayonet, Yucca aloifolia

Might be Y. elephantipes aka (guatemalensis). Check for flexible leaf tips. Incidentally it's not hardy to cold. So a house plant for you.

I doubt Y. aloifolia could ever get that tall without falling over.

Y. elephantipes often has a flaired base where all the stems emerge from.

I'm inclined to go with some sort of Yucca too, but it could be one of the very erect short-leafed forms of Cordyline australis, such as 'Kirkii' (photo attached).
