Yucca thompsoniana (Thompson Yucca)

Yucca thompsoniana
Thompson's Yucca, Beaked Yucca, Rose Yucca

The native habitat for this yucca ranges from northern Mexico through west Texas and into southeastern New Mexico. A wide trunk-forming species, it grows slowly to develop multiple heads. Short foot-long blue silver leaves have serrated margins and end in a sharp terminal spine. Early summer is the bloom season, with tall flower spikes covered with large white flowers rising above the foliage. Plant in full sun and well-drained soils. Young plants closely resemble Yucca rostrata, but different the growth habits set them apart.
