I've been trying to figure out what type of palm this is! I've searched the internet to no avail. What's throwing me off is the orientation of the fronds. Instead of growing off a stem, they seem to be jutting straight out of the trunk!

It looks like it might be some type of yucca rather than a palm. Try searching yuccas and see what you get.

This is a yucca, not a palm.

The more succulent Agaves are nice.... I was given a few from a truck load of these years ago. Took them home and decided they were just too dangerous. They'll put an eye out in a heartbeat. I tossed mine in the trash. Not sure of exact type but I guessed yucca also.

They are good to put next to windows that you don't want anyone sneaking into or out of.
