Cool huge grass plant with giant flower

Asked May 27, 2020, 2:06 PM EDT

What is this? It was here when I moved in. My intuitive sense is that a flower that big is once in a while and maybe it flowers and dies? Thank you much - great service for us neophyte gardeners. -Doug, SW PDX

What you have is a beautiful Yucca species specimen. There are 40-50 species of yucca plants, including the famous Yucca brevifolia (Joshua tree).

The Florgeous website has a wonderful introductory tutorial about yuccas.

Best of luck and happy gardening.

Thank you for that information and help!
It’s great to be able to get help this way.

Appreciatively - Doug.
