Tree/Plant - ID please?

On my first walk this summer around the neighborhood (central Florida), I walked by this tree/plant. Just a couple of months ago, the stalk in the middle was just barely starting to come up. I was so surprised to see it like this tonight! Anyone know what this is?? It's so cool!

I believe that's it! This cultivar seems to be a good match:

agave americana marginata

I guess this one is a variegated variety and has the more curved, or droopy, leaves like the one in my photo.

Awesome...thanks so much!

Agave!! Once they bloom, which only happens in about 20 years, they die.
