    I seen these around town, but I don't know what they are. If you could help me identify these that would be great. I want to put them in my backyard. I think they are two different types of palms. Thanks for the help.

    These are yucca plants. Palms have divided leaves, that look like fans or feathers.
     
  3. Are you sure that both of these are yucca plants?? Don't they typically live in the desert and not in the pacific northwest??? We have a lot of rain, and our soil is clay.

    The one on the left could be a cordyline, the one on the right is a Yucca. Yuccas for the most part do quite well in Vancouver. Some species however as you mentioned need a very dry soil. The joshua tree is one of those Yuccas that needs very dry conditions.
