"Mohave Yucca, a cluster in full bloom" Top 5 Page for this destination Flora / Fauna Tip by JLBG


Favorite thing: Traditionally, yucca has been used orally to treat arthritis and related ailments such as bursitis and gout. Although little research supports the specific use of yucca for treating arthritis, some researchers believe that saponins generally may interfere with the production of a chemical that keeps the body from making new cartilage for joints.
