Bang! I was inspired to photograph this alpine yucca after Judy Newton, UBC Botanical Garden‘s soon-to-be-retiring education coordinator, featured it in a lecture on Tuesday. Despite being native to New Mexico and Arizona, this plant does quite well in our well-drained alpine garden. Not the typical sort of plant one expects to see in Vancouver!
