Ecological planting choice, beautiful flowering in early spring.
Very drought resistant. Interesting life cycle with a specific moth involved in a mutualistic relationship for pollination. Beautiful shape.

Tips are sharp, it is pokey, like many plants of the west and southwest.

This is a yucca species that I grew up with I think- very nasty plant and I have been jabbed by it hiking through the southwest deserts many times. I think it's monocarpic, but not absolutely sure. Of minimal ornamental appeal (to me)
