Perhaps our smallest native yucca, native from South Central to North Central Texas, into Oklahoma and Arkansas, preferring prairie soil (but is adaptable). The leaves are blue-green to yellow-green with white margins and the blooms are greenish-white in the spring. Performs well in garden settings as an understory plant (2' to 3' in bloom) requiring only well-drained soil.
