Botanical Name: Yucca glauca
Yucca glauca is an evergreen perennial with long, narrow leaves that form a basal rosette. Native to central North America, yucca grows in arid soils extending from the Canadian prairies to southern Texas. The plant has many traditional uses with its flowers and seed pods being eaten as food, its leaves used in weaving, and the roots for their healthful benefits. Yucca root contains saponins and has also been employed as a soap, earning the name soapweed.
Yucca is a succulent that grows throughout the southern United States. Tribes of the Southwest use the yucca's leaves to make soaps, shampoos and other hygiene related items, including dental floss. Yucca belongs to the Agavaceae family.
