Soapweed. (Yucca glauca) Sometimes called just "yucca." The Plains Indians made a kind of soap out of the roots. Cows find parts of it tasty, but most ranchers kill it when it gets too numerous. When it blooms, it is a pretty plant. Some are in full bloom south of here, but right around my place they are still working on it.
