There's nothing like flying down the highway, engaged in what we refer to as botanizing at 55...especially when you spot a black foliaged yucca out of the corner of your eye. Well, the year was 2011, and we were zooming through Macon County, Alabama, when we indeed came to a screeching halt. Upon exploring closer, we had indeed run up on a clump of Yucca filamentosa var. concava whose growth turns black during the winter months. That thrill was equaled when our cutting exhibited the same traits in our display gardens, so our find was christened Yucca 'Bronze Age'.
