While soapweed yucca is uncommon in Missouri, only found in the loess hills in the northwest corner of the state, it is encountered frequently in states to our west. It has a deep taproot that can reach 20 feet and lateral roots that can extend even farther. This makes it very tolerant of drought. The roots contain saponin glycosides and, when crushed, can be used to make a soapy lather. It is a hardy plant, usually evergreen, and worthy of use in native landscaping.
