Calling all garden experts.............again

Okay, got a good answer here last time about a weed, now I want to know the name of a plant, and any tips n tricks for caring for it.

This thing is about 5' tall, very hairy leaves, and grows the way a yucca does, in that the lower leaves die off and leave a trunk for the higher leaves. As you can see from the leaves, it does need some TLC!

Can't tell you what it is, I'm afraid, as I am no horticulturalist (looks very exotic, though!). There is obviously a problem visible on the older leaves but it is hard to see much from a photograph. It could be a fungal infection, in which case spraying with a fungicide would help. I suggest you take an affected leaf to your local garden centre or nursery, they will probably be able to help.
