Too many yuccas

Some years ago a friend gave me two plants which she said were yuccas. On researching yuccas I can’t find a picture that looks quite like mine so now I’m not sure about the name. They have survived very well so they must be hardy as I’ve been able to kill most plants in my garden. They are a succulent although the very point of each leaf is very sharp. They have thrived where they are but now they’ve both had babies and quite a few of them. One day soon I’ll remove these youngsters and offer them for free on our local buy and sell Facebook page. Do you have succulents in your garden?

The only thing that might be considered a succulent in my garden would be "hen and chicks". I'm not fond of the plant....it seems to grow without my attention. At least the spot where it's growing is out of my regular line of vision. Your plant looks quite healthy.
They don't look like yuccas that some grow here.
I have this 'problem' with the ficus palms here. They just multiply although they are pretty plants. And then there are those sansevieria - they multiply too.Then there is aloe vera and several other creepers that just proliferate(lol)
I had a yucca years ago, but it spread so I started to give them away. But I replaced them with a succulent that my neighbour gave to me, and it spread even more. I kept a few when we moved, but I haven't planted them in the ground as of yet, they remain in pots, we'll see if I plant them, they are so much work thinning them out every year.
