Yucca filamentosa

Adam’s needle
AGAVACEAE, The agave family

Tall spires of creamy blossoms above spiky blue-green leaves: this is a plant that will catch your eye, or your skin. I used these in a display at the nursery today, and they are flowering in front of our place. I picked one nearly translucent blossom for each pigtail, I wore cream and beige, it’s summer, to go out, in the twilight, to dinner and walking in the park. Moths like yucca flowers. People eat the roots.

About Mulysa

I love my work as a landscape designer and artist. When I'm not planning homesteads or working in the studio, you'll find me hiking, photographing, gardening, baking, cooking vegetarian meals with friends, reading and working on sustainability issues...with my baby on my hip in Portland, Oregon.
