I Heart macro - the flower spike.

Hello friends,

Last week while I was out and about I saw this wonderful plant. It had a large footprint and a HUGE spike with red flowers. I think it was a little past it's prime but the bees were still loving it.

Does anyone know the name of this beauty?

A busy little bee!

Hi, I happened here by accident noticing your pic on Google. I can say you sure, that's a Yucca plant. Wich variety it is I don't know, because hadn't seen this color combination before on these plants. There are varieties with red (or orange) flowers too, but striped like this I didn't know. Yucca flowers have always 6 petals witch are pointed like these, and there are white flowers striped like these too. Only red striped flowers I didn't know from.
I hope this could help you at least a little bit. Greetings and good luck!
