Texan native.. stemless thin spined plant.. flower stalks 8' tall and kill the plant when done. Supposedly doesn't take well to being transplanted. Plants in photo I uploaded are new plantings, and fairly sparsely leaved... probably young plants... yet notice they are already flowering. Like our local Yucca whipplei here in So California (another stemless Yucca), these plants are going to die after this flowering stage.

Regional...

This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:

San Marino, California
