Is that all one plant?

Yea, it's all one plant. Now that I look at it, it does kinda look like it's not. I should have used a better angle for the photo. Are you in bio 14 also?

Haha oh okay. I took a picture of the same thing, but it doesn't have the tall second part to it. Yes I am! I just look different because my hair is always tied up :p

I think that tall part dried up on most of the yuccas already. Oh cool! Are you the one that said you went to the waterfall last week?

Yeah, the dead tall thing is the flower stalk of the yucca. They are really amazing.. look like giant q tips when you see them from far away. But, they only bloom in late winter/early spring for the most part, so if you haven't seen them before look for them next spring.
