Common Names: Spanish bayonet, dagger plant
|Our back yard is bursting with blooms after a week of rain, above is Spanish Bayonet/Yucca Plant. This blooms is 20 feet above my head|
We have one that was 5 feet taller than the roof of the house. When we planted the 2 plants, we did not know they would be so tall or that one becomes several and they need to be planted far away from foot traffic. To close to humans means lots of trim work.
They don't call it Spanish bayonet for no reason! The tips of the leaves are pointed and sharp! Do not plant Spanish bayonet near walkways, patios or in areas frequented by children and pets. This plant can inflict painful puncture wounds even through heavy clothing!
What do you call a frog spy? A croak and dagger agent! YUCCA FLOWER FACTS
