We are pleased to finally be able to offer the rare San Angelo soapwort thanks to our friends at Yucca Do. Our offering is from Sutton County, Texas, just west of Sonora. Yucca reverchonii is endemic to gravelly limestone soils of the Edwards Plateau in central Texas and is possibly the result of an ancient rendevous between Yucca thompsoniana and Yucca rupicola. For us, it makes a 2' tall x 3' wide short-trunked clump (usually solitary) of narrow blue-green leaves. Mature clumps are topped with 8' tall flower spikes of bright white bells in late May (NC).
