Sarcoyucca decipiens (Trel.) Lindinger

Yucca decipiens Trel.[3] is a large, branching member of the Asparagaceae, native to north-central Mexico from Durango to San Luís Potosí. It is evergreen, up to 20 feet (6 m) tall, growing at elevations of 1500–2000 m in the mountains. Common name is "palma china," which means "Chinese palm."

Yucca decipiens is relatively abundant, and although it has local threats, its population appears to be stable overall.[1]
