This spikey plant is an evergreen here in Atlanta. I've been wondering for years what this is.

Some kind of Yucca variety?

Sorry, this site keeps uploading my photos sideways.....

It is a bit difficult to see the photo, but I believe it is Cordyline australis, possibly Green Fountain. Mine get 7ft tall here in Califonria after about 3years, but I cut the trunk back to 6" of the ground in spring when they get too tall and they fill out and stay small again for a couple of years. The centers die out with cold, it looks like yours may have that condition, but you can cut it back in spring.
