Yucca ID

fairfield8619(Zone 8 NW LA)January 30, 2012

I found this next to an old house that had collapsed while digging up narcissus. It was growing in the shade and has about 2ft of trunk. The leaves arch and droop. Tips are spiney but the leaves are soft enough that you don't really get stuck. It has a very nice blue color as you can see. Is it recurvifolia? I'm in n. La and I think it is supposed to be native here.

My guess would be an over watered or shaded "Blue Yucca" - Yucca rigida.

It's a Yucca recurvifolia.
