A well known and popular cultured Yucca native to the Atlantic coasts of the United States, the Gulf of Mexico and much of the Caribbean.
Its rather thin trunk is either single or formed by a small number of branches, the leaves are short, rigid, dark green and have a very sharp final spine. This plant grows reasonably in pots and is well suited to temperate and tropical gardens.
The spring flowering is remarkable in panicles of ivory white flowers.
