Yucca beak is a perennial tree plant from subtropical North America. This plant from the agave family has up to 40 species.
At home, yucca is used in various fields of activity: from flowers, juice is obtained, which has a high sugar content, from another species, strong fibers are produced, which were used to make the first jeans. In the United States, yucca fibers are still added to jeans for strength and wear resistance. Yucca fibers serve as the basis for the production of paper and rope ropes, they are used for medicinal purposes.

In some species of yucca, the stem is practically invisible, but large beautiful leaves immediately grow, which are arranged in a spiral. Yucca inflorescences are large, erect, up to 2 meters in length, similar to panicles coming out of the center of the rosette. The flowers are white, bell-shaped. The ten-centimeter fruit is in the form of a box, in which black seeds ripen.
