I saw this pretty plant on the side of the road and had to take its picture. Yucca gloriosa sounds like a spell in the Harry Potter series, but this plant and I have a history. I had one for a couple of years at BYU until I gave it away when I moved. I did not have the gloriosa variety. The Yucca I had looked more like a miniature palm tree, and that’s kind of the family I thought it belonged in. The reason I say we had a history is because every other plant I have owned has died. Yuccas are very hearty and my Yucca at BYU grew tall and strong despite my neglect. Yuccas grow in the Southeastern part of the United States, in the more beachy climates. But they also grow beautifully in the Columbia Basin Desert. What is your favorite unusual plant?
