soapweed, Yucca glauca

Pretty enough? Yes, but you haven't really seen it yet. And neither have I! Now that I know yuccas open up, don their perfume, and have wild flower parties at night, the next trip west will be different. Nights will never be the same! I hope they let party crashers bring their cameras. It would be fun to catch some of those night pollinating moths in action too. Soapweed grows in AR, CO, IA, KS, MO, MT, ND, NE, NM, OK, SD, TX, WY, and AB. Sedgwick Co CO, 6/16/13.
