Our lords candle is that spectacular yucca that grows in much of Southern California. Well behaved and easy in most dry gardens. GREAT to plant as a 'hedge' in many of the areas of Southern California where people are living behind wire prison fences. The concept of a bunch of little guys out there with a bunch of lances pointed up into the sky behind a low friendly fence seems a great deal more neighborly than the eight foot fence with concertina wireor concrete wall with broken glass on top. Ah, retire to your enclosure in Southern California. (syn Yucca californica, Yucca Ortgesiana, Hesperoyucca)
