Yucca recurvifolia

A naturalized Texas shrub with excellent tolerance to hot and dry climates. The blueish-green flat leaves have a sharp tip, and grow up to three feet in length, bending downward over time. Weeping Yucca begins as a uniform rosette shrub, growing upward on a single trunk reaching heights of five to six feet before falling over its own weight. New trunks will sprout where the main trunk makes contact with the ground, making it a multi-trunk shrub.

The flower stalk can grow up to five feet above the foliage, displaying a large cluster of white to pale yellow bell-shaped flowers in the early spring that last into the summer.
