Description

"An odd name as it looks to me very little like an aloe, but very much like a Yucca or perhaps an Agave (both its closer relatives, too). Hesperaloes are generally Mexican plants in the Agave subfamily (family of Asparagus), though several species can be found in Texas."

This is a plant in my front yard and adorns many of the yards here in Austin, Texas.
