What kind of plant is this and can it stay outside - it's IMMENSE!

3 years ago

Does anyone know what kind of plant this is and what its cold tolerance might be?
I bought it from Home Depot 11 years ago when it was about 2-3' tall and it is now a 12' pointy monster that weighs 200+ lbs.

It has very sharp leaves that make moving it extremely difficult. I cut off the bottom leaves as they die and turn brown. The leaves are similar to yuccas that I have.
I seem to think it was a Corn Plant but not sure.
We've been wrestling it in and out of the garage every year but it's to the point of being nearly unmanageable and I'm wondering if it would survive outside?

I live in central North Carolina.

Thank you!
