Y.Rostrata creates confusion in my neighborhood :-)

My neighbors ask me "where I bought this palm tree" pointing at y. Rostrata.. When I explain that this is Yucca, similar to Cactus nobody believes me and they want the name of this plant.. and when I repeat Y.Rostrata they get even annoyed thinking I am trying to mislead them.. :-)
This yucca was 1/2 of its size shown in the picture when I transplanted it to FL from my old house in Princeton, NJ in 2005.
The same year Hurricane Wilma killed it to the rootball.
I removed the rootball from the lakeside of the house and replanted it in the from of there house.. and it began to grow.
