One of the things I like about spring is finding little surprises – for example, the blossoming flowers all around that suddenly decide to pop up and present themselves.
On my walks in the area I was very unimpressed by this average looking yucca:
The banana yucca, or Yucca baccata, has a blueish tint and usually grows in groups, just like a little family.
But now that spring has come, several plants have a gorgeous, amazing inflorescence and flowers that hang down like a bunch of bananas, where I suppose its name comes from.
I enjoy the unexpected, sometimes.
