Endemic to the Edward's Plateau, this trunkless palmito features bright green leaves that variously spiral all the way to the tip. Twist Leaf Yucca is extremely tough and will colonize readily to form patches 3-5' across. In the Spring, the plant sends up a showy 4-5' spike of white flowers.

Leaves are deer-resistant but budded flower stalks can be at risk.
