The Mojave Yucca

Mojave yucca on Skull Rock trail
Although related to the Joshua tree, the Mojave yucca, (Yucca schidigera) developed characteristics that separate it from other yuccas. Notice the yellow-green, trough-like leaves with white curled fibers on the edges. Creamy or purplish-tinged flowers bloom in the spring.

The Mojave yucca is on of the most widely used plants. It once provided food and clothing for Indian tribes. Wood rats eat and disperse seeds, and carry off leaves for their nests.
