Yucca schottii

A clumping, caulescent Yucca. In the FNA treatment of the genus, Hess & Robbins suggest that some plants called Yucca schottii are actually Yucca madrensis, and the remainder of Yucca schottii may be a hybrid complex. The result is that there's something out there being called Yucca schottii that doesn't get formally treated in any comprehensible way in the FNA treatment, and this seems to be it.
