I'm sure this needs to be cut back, but I want to find out what it is before I start hacking at it. I have a few of them and the largest is at least a couple feet tall. I've lived here for a year now and haven't seen any flowers. It basically looks the same year round.

Maybe New Zealand Flax - Phormium tenax

My neighbor cuts them off about 6 inches above the ground every winter and they just grow back. They should bloom though. Too cold?

Either too cold or not enough sun, I imagine. It should bloom in full sun.
