|Yucca in bloom for Flowers on Saturday.|
Did you know...
Yucca is a genus of perennial shrubs and trees in the family Asparagaceae, subfamily Agavoideae. Its 40-50 species are notable for their rosettes of evergreen, tough, sword-shaped leaves and large terminal panicles of white or whitish flowers. They are native to the hot and dry (arid) parts of North America, Central America, South America, and the Caribbean.
The "yucca flower" is the state flower of New Mexico. In some parts of the country, the Yucca is known as "meat hangers" for salt curing. Yet, in other parts, some folks call this flower 'Ghosts in the graveyard', as it is commonly found growing in rural graveyards and when in bloom the flowers appear as an apparition floating. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yucca
