Neighbor sent me this photo from Kauai. Can anyone ID it? Are those seeds on the stalk?

That is Agave attenuata (or Foxtail Agave), on the stalk you have unopened flowers towards the tip, flowers (yellow stretch) and then spent flowers/seed pots.

Thanks so much for ID! I will tell neighbor to pilfer a few seeds before she returns!

You won't find viable seeds so easily, but at the base of the plant you will find offsets.

I was just being silly! I think I can find one here. It just looked so exotic in the photo.
