What looks like two giant asparagus-like stocks are growing out of a plant in our front yard. I did a little research and thought it might be a Century Giant. I just wanted to get more opinions to find out exactly what it is. Right now, it's at least 7ft tall and it's growing pretty fast. We're not sure if we should cut it down or let it grow...
Yucca glauca doesn't normally have 7 foot flower stems. It's pretty modestly-sized, in the yucca world.
EDIT: Some closer photos, of both the plant, and the flower buds, would probable be helpful. Is the plant actually purplish in colour? It seems to contrast quite a bit from the other (obviously green) foliage in the photo.
