Stunning Yucca!

This Yucca was in bloom at the botanical gardens the other day. Yucca are attractive, drought tolerant plants that take a long while to get to blooming size. However, when they bloom, it is quite a show! I'm not sure which species of yucca this is or, I suppose, that it is truly a yucca. Either way, it had a huge crowd of bees and was very spectacular.

Surprisingly we can actually successfully overwinter a few yucca plants in my northern climate. They are great for xeriscaping in the dry climate I live in.
