It's a New Zealand Flax (Phormium tenax) getting ready to bloom. Sometimes the blooms are showy, and sometimes not so much. I would just cut the flowering stalks off as close to the base as possible, when they are done.

I always think that Phormium flowers must be the most disappointing in the world!

Yes, you would think that something that closely related to Daylilies would be spectacular! Ah, well. :/
