From 5,000' to 6,000' in the central Mexican State of San Luis Potosi in the Chihuahuan Desert comes the 15' tall palm-like Yucca potosina. The 2' long, concave, green, deer-resistant leaves with grey/brown twisted hairs resemble the nearby Yucca carnerosana. It is often mistaken for this species until flowering, when Yucca carnerosana produces a huge upright spike, while Yucca potosina has a porn star-sized, very pendent flower spike in need of a massive dose of Viagra.
