Howdy, new member. I'm relatively new myself.

To answer your question, I would say with definite uncertainty that what you have is a Yucca. We see a fair number of them here in Texas. I don't know which yucca it is, but I bet if you do a search in the Plants Database for Yucca, there will be a number of pictures that you can compare yours to.

I should also point out that there are many people here that might be more specific than I was.

Welcome and good luck!

Hi KH123, Welcome!

I agree with the identification, your lovely plant is one of the variegated versions of Yucca filamentosa.

Agree, Sue, I always check here first! One of my fav things about this site - well-loved plants are well-documented & there's often many various pics, from multiple individual plants in diff places & exposures under various modes of care.

When taking a pic as evidence of ID in a google or other search-engine search, consider the source. A resource/database type site would be considered reliable, depending on its' pedigree. Pics on pinterest, flickr, photobucket may or may not be labeled correctly. All of these kinds of pics can come up in a search.

Not that there aren't mistakes on source sites, but they are rare and corrected when found.
