Plants adapted to living in dry environments are called a xerophyte. Xerophyte’s include succulents, pineapple, poinsettia, peyote, Barbary Fig, and many others. Succulents are plants that store water in their leaves. They include cactus, aloe, jade plant, agave, yucca, and more. Both agave and yucca are rosette forming plants. Agave generally have sharp spines on their leaf edges, where yucca have no sharp spines. Yucca leaves are thin, long, and fairly straight. This Narrow Leaf Yucca have long curling white filaments and is home in the southwest and Colorado Plateau areas of northern Arizona, southern Utah, and northwest New Mexico. They are found in Pinyon/Juniper, rocky, or sandy areas up to 7000 feet.
