Yucca Clone Rings

Located near the Fry Mountains, this fenced Area of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC) contains nearly yucca clone rings of yucca (yucca schidigera) plants. Each ring started from a single plant possibly as far back as thousands of years ago and is a natural clone of the original. As the rootlets from the existing yucca plant sprouts and grows immediately next to it, the ring is formed over long periods of time.
