Yucca Revisited

I assume this is two types of yucca and the shorter one is more typical of what we commonly see growing in the wild.  I know that deer really enjoy eating those blossoms - but I've not tried them to see what all the shouting is about.  The Native Americans used the yucca for all kinds of things because the "leaves" have cords that appear when the plant dries up.  They wove the cords into ropes, sandals, etc.  I can attent that the points of those leaves are really very sharp.
