I couldn’t help but wince at the sight of the poky end of a Pale-leaf yucca, Yucca pallida, speared through the innocent leaf of its garden companion, a Turk’s cap, Malvaviscus arboreus. .
Having been at the receiving end of more than one sharp yucca needle (usually in the butt!), I’m sympathetic to the ouch! that the Turk’s cap surely must have experienced.
