This Yucca is a naturally occuring hybrid between Yucca baccata & Yucca elata (baccata elata).

I've seen these growing in the wild on the West Ruby Road Trail in Arizona (South of Tucson), off of Interstate 19 through to Ruby, AZ and on to Arivaca, AZ.

Neutral palmbob On Apr 16, 2004, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

This cold hardy tree Yucca is a native of the US southwest where it grows in mountains and valleys. It branches just barely above ground but usually not after that. Has long, stiff 1" wide leaves that are not too compactly spaces along the stem compared to most other tree yuccas. Tolerates more shade than most species.
