A 1-3' evergreen stemless shrub. It has cream colored flowers in an 8' spike. The leaves are spine-tipped. (The kids when they were little called them yuccies.) This one suckers and slowly spreads into a 2-3' across clump. Native to central and southern California. It likes full sun, no water after established. It tolerates serpentine soil. A good barrier plant. They grow on the mountain behind the nursery in granite under chamise. The summer temperatures often get above 130 degrees and the rainfall is about 20 inches.
