Yucca endlichiana is so far out on the yucca family tree that it's almost unrecognizable as a yucca. Endemic to a small area in Mexico's Chihuahuan Desert at 3,000', this is the only stoloniferous species of yucca. The tightly-packed clumps are reminiscent of Agave lechuguilla, with pencil-thick, 1' tall, upright blue-green leaves emerging directly from the ground. In May, the white bell-like floral clusters open among the foliage. If you've got hot, dry, slightly alkaline soils, you've got a chance at growing this strange deer-resistant yucca.
