    : United States: Florida: Liberty County. 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 inflorescences to be at their height of flowering. By Fla. Rd 271 between its intersection with Rd. 270, generally southeastward from Torreya State Park. Leaves stiff and rigid, angling-ascending, yellowish green. I note here the flowering date for these plants because on 12 July, 1988, travelling Interstate 10, I saw numerous plants, widely scattered, between Tallahassee and the Suwannee River, all with the inflorescences of stature as noted above and at about their peak of flowering. The leaves were relatively narrow, limber, and more or less "floppy." Did not collect because all 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.
