Narrowleaf Yucca

Greetings from New Mexico! I am here visiting my daughter and brand new granddaughter. Meanwhile, a couple hikes and some exciting plants. This one, Narrowleaf Yucca (Yucca angustissima) was seen growing in abundance at Rio Grande del Norte National Monument. As you can see from the photo, this (like all our true Western yuccas) is far different from the one you see all over Boise. So much more erect and structurally pleasing. Some of you may recall a previous rant about those wretched (Eastern) Yuccas . . . .
