Does it look like anything special - a truckbed filled with dug-out plants? It sure does! It means treasures!
I hit a jackpot! My friend did some renovation in her garden and got rid of many yucca-like plants. The plants are mature with many baby plants attached.

Several plants of different sizes were potted in terracota pots:
Everything looks good, but I would like to know the name of this plant. Any ideas? They are evergreen, hardy, and in summer, as my friend describes, they have red poppy-like flowers on their long stalks. My first guess was yucca. But, I have never seen yuccas with only 1-2 red poppy-like flowers per stalk. Have you?
