So Yucca plants like a hot arid landscape and can normally be found in warm climates and desert-like conditions (after all the flower is the state flower of New Mexico) but has adapted to coastal sands and mountains. Which is why, I suppose, there are some to be found on the inhospitable cliffs of Whitsand Bay. What is doubly interesting is that the flowers come and go over the summer but as we had a late season this year continuing into a mild autumn these Yuccas above gave us a late showing. The photograph in the top left was taken in what looks like the height of summer but was actually at the beginning of October with the other two pics being taken a couple of weekends ago. It lends a tropical air to the cliffs don’t you think?
