flower identification

This is, in just about every way, a very unremarkable picture, but I need help - what is this plant?  I'm sure someone knows ... They are blooming, in little clumps, all over Eldorado, and what I really need is the equivalent of Shazam - hold my iPhone up to a plant, and see what identification comes back.  Maybe I could market an App for that, but I suspect it wouldn't quite hit the market value of Facebook shares today.  It's unremarkable, yes - but on the other hand, it's totally wonderful to be able to walk around in complete peace and quiet, with the wind blowing strongly, and with the department 870 miles away, and only bothering me via email.

    A species of yucca, perhaps?
