Plant Highlights

Yucca whipplei, or "The Lords Candle", is native to the Southwestern Desert Regions and can be found from Utah to Northern Baja . It has thin, concave leaves that are blade like structures that form a small bush at the base. The white and purple flowers are displayed on a 1 to 3 cm stalk that grows from the center of the leaf formation below. They bloom in Spring and continue until late April, setting the flowers in pouch like cases for seed generation.
