This clump-forming, deer-resistant yucca is native only to a small area in the Edwards Plateau region of Texas, where we found it growing atop very dry banks with liatris and vernonia. Yucca rupicola is prized for the wide green leaves that twist, forming a wild-looking clump that reminds me of those delightfully silly, over-moussed punk rock hairdos of the '80s. In spring, the 3' tall x 3' wide Yucca rupicola clumps are topped with 8' flower spikes of white bells.
