[Note Guidelines]
Usually trunkless, it is a multisuckering evergreen shrub with heads of 75 cm (30 in) long, filamentous, blue-green, strappy leaves. It is fully hardy, though in cultivation it benefits from a sheltered position away from winter winds. Y. filamentosa is readily distinguished from other yucca species by white, thready filaments along the leaf margins.[7] Flower stems up to 3 m (10 ft) tall bear masses of pendulous cream flowers in early summer.[3] They are pollinated by the yucca moth Tegeticula yuccasella.[8][9] Other moth species also use this yucca as a host plant to lay their eggs, such as Tegeticula intermedia.[10]

Y. filamentosa is closely related to Yucca flaccida and it is possible they should be classified as a single specie

Hello Raimundo,
A nice shot of this flowering Yucca plant. I like the way it is placed a bit off center and framed in by the large palm on the left. Maybe not tac sharp, but still quite presentable.
