Yucca filamentosa--Adam's Needle

I posted awhile back about a similar plant that is a native to California: Our Lord's Candle. Apparently have influenced the names of this group. This one is a bit shorter, and needs more water, but looks very similar. Indians used it to stun fish and make baskets. Creamy flowers blooming now at the UC Botanical Garden.
