Chaparral Candle, Hesperoyucca whipplei (Agavaceae)

Chaparral Candle, Hesperoyucca whipplei (Agavaceae)

The beginnings of an inflorescence emerging from a native Southern California yucca. Unlike agaves, where the blooming individual dies after fruit has set, yuccas remain alive to flower multiple times over their lifespan.
