In temperate south-central Pennsylvania, the Yukka filamentosa is common as a decorative plant. A lot of folks in this area call it the Spanish Bayonet, although that term may only apply accurately to the southwestern varieties.

The last time I saw one blooming I didn't have a camera with me, but made a sketch in my field note book.

Can't compare to your colored pencil art, but gives me a way to get the sense of what I'm seeing and usually permits me to identify the plant or the critter later.

Don, Wayne - interesting info on the Yucca. Thank you!

After my father left the army in the '50s, he then worked in the sisal industry for the rest of his life.
