After viewing all the magnificent pictures of yucca here, I wonder if these are related to the silversword plant found only on Haleakala crater on the island of Maui? I have yucca in my yard here in eastern Kansas and always look forward to its blooms in the summer. What a reliable plant. It is perennial here so must be able to withstand temps down to 0.

The Silversword is a Daisy relative (no relationship to Yuccas) in the genus Agryoxiphium. Cool plant, though
