The Agave looking plant is Furcraea.

Use plants as sculpture. Some plants, such as this agave-like Furcraea (zones 9 to 11), are so dramatic that they effectively function as living sculpture. They are shown to best advantage when planted as a focal point. In this garden the furcraea softens a garden corner while captivating the eye.
