Re: Identify this Yucca?
For me it looks nearly similar to a Y. thompsoniana but it is quite difficult to determine a plant with that bad conditions.
The the construction of the inflorescence is rather atypical for a yucca, but is also not seldom. These usually occur after transplantation, the importation or environmental influences that are triggered by harsh winters or other extreme situations.
Those flowers are named (sorry I dont know the correct word in english for) "emergency flower".
That means that the plant received the information that the plant will die at the next time so the plant sends out an emergency flower in order to produce so many seeds it can before it dies.
But that not means that the plant has to be die.
The grafic shows an emergency flower of a Y. rostrata if you can see the constucting of that flower looks similar that of your Yucca.
