Here's what I found on Wikipedia on Nolina plants:
Nolina is a genus of tropical xerophytic flowering plants, with the principal distribution being in Mexico and extending into the southern United States.[2][3][4][5][6]

Some botanists have included the genus Beaucarnea in Nolina. In the APG III classification system, it is placed in the family Asparagaceae, subfamily Nolinoideae (formerly the family Ruscaceae).[7] Former alternative placements include Nolinaceae and Agavaceae. The genus is named for 18th century French arboriculturist Abbé C. P. Nolin.[3] Members of the genus are known as beargrasses,[8] some of which are cultivated as ornamental plants.

NOLINA RECURVATA or “LEG OF ELEPHANT”. The Nolina (recurvata Beaucarnea) is a tree bottle of more or less slow growth that can get to grow much. So that you become an idea is a famous unit in Elche (Alicante) of 350 years that measures 8 meters and has a diameter of 3 meters in the base. In flowerpot it can arrive up to 2 meters and as of the 10 years it can bloom.

To me? It still looks like a loaded shaving brush. To each his (her) own! :o)

Thanks, Dave. I'm glad to learn the name of this stunning tree.

I see absolutely no resemblance to a Bougainvillea.

PutterDutt

Thanks, PW.

It looks like a Bougainvillea or Japanese Pine Tree to me.

Tamanho De Patas De Elefante. (Spanish) ELEPHANT-LEG IS A SHRUB AND CAN REACH 5 METERS IN HEIGHT

The curious trunk of the elephant 's paw has the same function as the fat leaves of the succulents and the enlarged stem of the cacti : it serves to store water in periods of drought
