The imposing, tree-like Trecul Yucca

One of my favorite tropicals is this Yucca Treculeana. It hails from South Texas and Northern Mexico. We once lived in San Antonio, where they are very common.
Here, this guy was planted in 1994, facing the hot, west sun. Though categorized as Zone 8, it has never shown any ill effects of single-digit temps.
Several times, it has thrust up fairly dramatic seasonal white spring flower blossoms, and on two occasions there were multiple blossoms. You can see the remnants of this springís flower stalks in this photo. I think it is ready to display multiple trunks at its growth point.
I really donít know what its ultimate size will be.
