Difficult to see, need a more close up pic but it looks like Dracaena draco. I can just pick out a bulbous base.

Thanks Andy,

There is one with two heads in the Backyard.

The one in the frontyard is always outside and doesnt get a lot of Sun. If it is a draco its pretty hardy

To me,Yucca aloifolia? Even Y.recurvifolia is possible.

Its not Aloifolia because the trunk is whitish and fat, like the one in the Backyard. Recurvifolia is hardy here and also these have different trunks.


They do remind me of this draco, both in color and leave and trunk
