Is that really a yucca? It looks more like a joshua tree to me. Maybe joshua trees ARE yuccas also?

GL,

No, it isn't - the one pictured on the U2 album is located in the US.

Socks - Yucca brevifolia's common name is the Joshua tree.

Yucca brevifolia = Joshua Tree.

I heard the one used in the U2 album (near Lee Flat) is now dead?
