(aka: Hesperoyucca whipplei ssp. eremica) Forming a monocarpic (dies after flowering) 3' wide, often clustering rosette of silvery-grey deer-resistant leaves, this form of Yucca whipplei is found in the Mexican State of Baja California Norte...yes, this is really a Mexican state. The stunning flower spike often has purple on the buds...a hummingbird delight. Perfect drainage is essential for survival...for advanced gardeners only. Recent DNA work has shown that this is more closely related to hesperaloe than yucca, but we're waiting to hear if this stands up in court, under protest that the DNA was illegally obtained.
