Dasylirion texanum 

Durable, low-maintenance accent plant reaching 6' tall by 6' wide at maturity. Shiny, green leaves armed with stout, curved teeth, so care should be used in locating this plant in a landscape.  Cold tolerant. Not as deserty looking as wheeleri.  Give it room as teeth are sharp, Native in Texas and Chihuahua, Mexico. With age will flower with a slender, densely packed column of flowers.
