Strong and Tough: Yucca


Abstract:
There are three types of yucca plants in the state--Adam's needle, Spanish dagger, and Spanish bayonet. All three are found on sand dunes and beaches, and as their name indicates, they are sharp to the touch. The leaves are tough because they live in an environment of hot sun, high temperatures, and salty breezes.
