Good afternoon!

I picked up thi basket for my sister, who lives in California to put on our Mother's grave for Mothers' Day. I know about the Begonia and Asparagus Fern, but I can't remember (or find it listed) the name of the plant in the middle of the basket. My sister thinks that it is called, "Spanish Swords." I thought they had sharp points, but this plant does not. Can someone help me identify the plant?

Thank you so much!

To me it looks like a Dracaena. I'm not sure which one it is.

Lovely arrangement and I agree, that spiky plant looks like Dracaena marginata.

Thank you so much Plantmanager and Plantlady. I couldn't think of it to save my life. Years ago, I had one like the second picture you posted Plantlady, in my house when I lived in Florida.

Thanks, again to the both of you!!! Pat

Another possibility would be Spanish bayonet (Yucca alifolia). The common name got my attention.

It really does look like Dracaena marginata. The yucca doesn't have lines on the margins of the leaves like that, and the leaves are wider.

Ctcarol. Thanks -that came to my sister's mind also; however, it can't be a Spanish Bayonet, because it does not have the sharp needle like tips -the ones on this plant do not have sharp points and are slender leaves. I believe that it is Dracaena marginata.

I appreciate y'alls help!
