Special Geographical Unit: Torreya State Park
Verbatim Directions to Locality: By Fla. Rd 271 between its intersection with Rd 12 and its intersection Rd. 270, generally southward from Torreya State Park.
Plant Morphology Observations: Specimen from a plant with infructescence (stalk plus panicle) 33 dm tall. Axes of infructescence and capsules varyingly moderately suffused with reddish-purplish pigment to wholly reddish-purplish. A very great many infructescences to be seen at this locality, all with capsules at approximately the same stage of maturity, on this date. I stopped in the same place on 1 June 1988 and judged the very many infructescences to be at the height of flowering. Leaves stiff and rigid, angling-ascending, yellowish green. I note here the flowering date for these plants because on 12 July 1988, traveling Interstate 10, I saw numerous plants, widely scattered, between Tallahassee and the Suwannee River, all with infructescences of stature as noted above and at about the peak of flowering. The leaves were relatively narrow, limber and more or less "floppy". Did not collect because all the plants I saw were outside the right-of-way fence. Similarly, along I-10 between Tallahassee and the Greensboro interchange on 13 July, 1988, I saw widely scattered plants (Yucca), at peak of flowering and looking essentially like those seen the preceding day.
