Closing in on the Alphabet with Yucca

I’m really closing in on my Natural Patterns Alphabet! I only have three drawings left to complete the series, after this new one:

yucca

Yucca, 5 x 5 inches, pen and ink, prints available in my shop

Yucca, what a very strange and pokey plant, with an equally strange name. In fact, with my very brief research, the name came from Latin, but is of unknown origin. Hmmm. What an enigma!

I think the most distinctive species of Yucca is the Joshua Tree, but I decided that the pokey spears were the most distinct feature of all species. I would not want to fall on this plant, but it is fun to look at.

    I love yuccas! The variety I see most often here in New Zealand has the most wonderful tall flower spike. I really must plant some! Congrats on almost finishing your alphabet too!
