I am trying to find the name of this plant for a while. The closest I got is Yucca filamentosa color. The leaf blades are near 4-5 inches and are almost thin(without pulp). Please help me in identifying it. enter image description here

Location: Hyderabad, India.

  • $\begingroup$ Yucca mostly has smooth leaf and this has spine shaiped leaf. Yucca ussaly dont have so wide leaf. (swcoloradowildflowers.com/White%20Enlarged%20Photo%20Pages/…) here is some pictures of semi desert yuccas $\endgroup$ – L.Diago May 27 '18 at 20:56
  • $\begingroup$ No, not the Yucca baccata . I was thinking Yucca filamentosa color guard(missouribotanicalgarden.org/PlantFinder/…). As per the wide part, the leaf blades in my picture are around 4 inches wide. $\endgroup$ – vamsidhar muthireddy May 27 '18 at 21:19
  • $\begingroup$ You know i am not professional botanic so i hope you will get proper answer for this question. But i think that yucca has smooth leaf without pulp(mostly), but agave has spike shaiped leaf with pulp. $\endgroup$ – L.Diago May 27 '18 at 21:27
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for mentioning the pulp part. The plant that I uploaded has almost no pulp in it's leaves. $\endgroup$ – vamsidhar muthireddy May 27 '18 at 21:49

I found out the picture that I posted belongs to Furcraea foetida 'Mediopicta'. It belongs to "Agave" family like L.Diago suggested in comments.
