Hi folks. This is a pup off of a very large plant which produced many. The mother plant got to 7' and at least as wide with all of it's babies. It does not flower. Probably a zone 9 and higher plant as it did brown up in light frost. Colors are predominately yellow and green. Blades on mother plant got to 4" wide and 6-7' long. Hope someone can ID it!

Nope, this is not spider plant...this gets to be 7 feet tall!! I am able to use spider plants as ground cover here though and it works wonderfully.
Nope, the blade edges are smooth, not jagged, and the leaves are fairly supple...not hard...
I'd vote for the Phormium, (there are many variegations). As I recall, its leaves originate in a rather fanwise way, a little like plants of the Iris family. Then just above the "fan," the leaf seems to kind of pinch and then is oriented in a perpendicular way to its base.
That really seems to make no sense does it? I'm trying to figure a better way to phrase that...
It would also have a significant fold down the center of its leaves.
It would also bloom in clusters not unlike those of Kangaroo Paw.
Hope this is some help...
Thanks to all of you for chiming in with ideas as to what my plant is. By coincidence I recently ran into the fellow I got it from years ago. Forgot all about its source till I saw him! SO I asked him and he said it is Pandanus, forget the variety...so I'll have to believe that. I will check out all of your suggestions though...love to research and learn.
I'm not $ubscribing, so will miss reading all of these posts and friendly help. Happy gardening, Sue in FL
