Thanks Lisa! After reading your response, I did a search for both types and found the following 2 photos of Yucca elephantipes, which look almost identical to the one pictured above. It is difficult to tell between the different species because many are so similar to one another. I actually have 4 Yucca cane elephantipes (according to the label from the plant store) in my front flower bed, but they sure don't look like the ones pictured here. Ha ha. I think they are still relatively young though, so maybe in time...
Thanks for the info!

I have Giant Yuccas growing in my front and back yards, and they do, indeed grow pretty fast. There's one in my yard that is probably reaching up to 30 feet, although I've never measured it. When my dog was younger he used to climb the trunk, chasing lizards. The trunks are strong and can grow horizontally before reaching skyward. They do need to be pruned once a year or so -- by pulling off the dead leaves that are usually at the bottom. When they get up to 20 feet or so, it's time to call in someone with a big ladder!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Frank Organ added this to Give Your Small Garden Some Room
Structure is the most important thing when it comes to designing a small garden. The bones of the garden hold it together in all seasons and weather conditions. The squared paved area here unites different parts of the garden through its structural use of strong lines.
Inside a sunken or elevated space, you have an altogether different vantage point. Perhaps the design focuses your attention inward, fostering intimate conversation. Or, if the orientation is outwardly focused, you'll observe the borrowed landscape or enjoy a bird's-eye view of the garden.Any time the grade is changed, even with a single riser, the dynamic is also changed. Here are some clever ways designers have changed the grade. I give them an A-plus.Step it down. At the lowest point of this narrow, steep backyard, there was plenty of room for a patio. But this is no ordinary patio. It's a dreamy destination for anyone who walks outside the back door.The elements are perfect. First, the designer has done a superb job of breaking up the slab into bands and squares, further defined by crushed stone. The treatment ensures good drainage and suggests a patterned carpet.As you descend a few concrete steps to enter the sunken outdoor living room, you're drawn to the generously scaled U-shape bench. Made of a sustainable hardwood, it embraces three edges of the patio and has a gas fire bowl at its center.Twenty could sit here easily. Just add a few cushions and you've got a party.
Frank Organ added this to Geometry Roots Great Garden Design
Modern formal gardens use geometry to define private outdoor spaces, and smaller gardens require clean lines and minimal features to allow for multifunctional uses. Geometrics aid this design. The strong rectangular shape of this table and bench, for example, reinforce the clean lines.
Becky Harris added this to 21 Patios Ready to Party
"Watching a lunar eclipse or meteor shower" party. There's a futuristic, otherworldly look to this patio.
2. Identify Your Design StyleA seamless transition from your home's interior to its exterior is created when the architectural and interior design style — from line, shape and colors to textures and building materials — is echoed in the outdoor spaces.
Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to Explore Your Garden Personality: The Extrovert
Consider different levels for a smaller space. Perhaps your garden consists of an urban courtyard. How do you maximize your available space and create different entertainment areas? Consider adding a third dimension to your space by changing elevation. You’ll be surprised at how many areas you can carve out of your small space by going up or going down.
