I hate that common name. What a stupid name. They should change it. I’m going to call this the Cherry Pie Yucca, because it’s delicious.
Yucca rostrata – From Texas, it can get over 6 ft. tall, and will look a lot like a Joshua Tree, but it will survive the winter in these parts, thrive even. Still, it’s not as famous as the Joshua Tree, and so most people aren’t interested. I suppose if Bono hasn’t sung a song to it recently, then you might not want it. Well fine. More for me.
