wow! I haven't a clue! How interesting that the "bloom" elbows out from the plant!

Is it bamboo growing out of that plant? Bamboo grows that fast and looks sort of like that.

Sandee said...

I've not a clue. Overnight? Yikes.

Have a terrific day. :)

Lynne said...

That is a Yucca plant, very popular in the southwest. The spikey thing will/should bloom with flowers and then you need to cut it off, carefully, without poking yourself!

I have no idea but wow that is a fast grower!

Aloha Sherry,

I'm sorry I can't help you identify that plant. Hope you find your answer soon.

Hope you stop by http://upcountrysmiles.com & visit.

It's a yucca.

Sarge Charlie said...

yucca, holy crap, that's yuck

Shey said...

Wow! So it's Yucca as Lynne said. Very interesting that it spikes like that. Looks like an upright snake. :)

Stephanie said...

Yeah, I think it might be a type of yucca. We have those around here too, and it's amazing how fast they shoot up! Interesting that yours decided to sprout at a right angle, though.

Thanks for stopping by!

Maria@Conversations with Moms said...

No idea, but it very interesting looking.

Karen said...

yep, looks like a yucca to me, too.

barb said...

Yup, yucca! Although it does seem a bit confused!

kaye said...

It looks like a yucca cactus to me too--except the blooms usually grow straight up--so it's kind of unique. Here’s my WW hope you can stop by!

SandyCarlson said...

Wow, wow, wow! That stuff is neat. Makes me think of corn.

Lily Hydrangea said...

I've never seen one like this before, this is pretty neat. Thanks for sharing.

The Brantley Family said...

Apparently its a Yucca...but if they grow in the Southwest, how in the world did it make to the humid climate of coastal SC?

Grampy said...

Yucca Cactus. I will have to take everyone's ideas as fact. I have no idea.
Thanks for visiting Grampys place.

Jack said...

Interesting! Looks like something from little shop of horrors.Did you figure out what it is?

Thanks for the visit and comment over at my place :)

The Bumbles said...

I agree with Jack - be careful lest that Yucca end up being Audrey II.

The Muse said...

it is indeed a yucca ... which grows in a myriad of places ... oddly enough.

why it has decided to take a turn to the RIGHT...and point to HEAVEN... is anyone's guess.

:)
LOL

Oldqueen44 said...

Yep I agree with the others. Yucca, it is. It should get nice yellow or white flowers on the shoot from the center.
Thanks for stopping by.
