What is Beschorneria yuccoides
Beschorneria yuccoides (scientific name: Beschorneria yuccoides) is a large, cold-hardy, heat-tolerant, drought-tolerant dwarf herb in the family Asparagaceae, native to Mexico. It is also called Mexican lily. In Mexico, it grows naturally in high mountains. It is a stemless plant. The leaves are rhizomatous, sword-shaped, leathery, gray-green to green in color, 40-60 cm long and 3.5 cm wide with serrated edges. The leaves are soft to the touch. Inflorescences are 1 to 1.8 m long, with flower-like bracts growing from between the leaves. The bracts are green at first, but turn red as the flowering progresses. The bracts do not open. After flowering, oval fruits are produced. The name Beschorneria is a dedication to the German botanist Friedrich Wilhelm Beschorner. The species name, yuccoides, means "yucca-like".
