This is an agave. Agaves are from the New World, but have been cultivated all over the world since 1492 when MANY plants were brought from the Americas to Europe and beyond. Opuntia cactus are similar; plants of the American deserts that you now see almost everywhere in the world. Similarly, I live in Southern California, and MOST of the trees here are from Asia and Africa. The plant trade has mashed everything up.
