ABC WednesdayABC Wednesday-Y For Yucca

I was trying to find and list out all flowers and plants I have seen  according to alphabet letter since I joined the ABC Wednesday MEME. So today is letter Y: 

What Flowers start with the letter Y?

Yarrow (common name) 
Ylang-ylang (common name) 
Yew (common name) 
Yasmin (common name) 
Yucca (botanical name)
Well, I never heard about the first 3 flowers, though I can find the picture online. But I like Yucca, the stunning indoor plants display. 

Yucca is a genus of perennial shrubs and trees in the family Asparagaceae, subfamily Agavoideae.[2] Its 40-50 species are notable for their rosettes of evergreen, tough, sword-shaped leaves and large terminal panicles of white or whitish flowers. They are native to the hot and dry (arid) parts of North America, Central America, South America, and the Caribbean.

I like yucca plants, but have no room for any in my garden.

I like Yucca plants too. The plants in my school display lovely flowers in winter.
