Yucca constricta known by the common name "Buckley's yucca,"[3] is a plant in the family Asparagaceae. It is found in rocky limestone hills of central and eastern Texas, and also in Coahuila, Mexico.[4]

Yucca constricta is usually acaulescent (trunkless), sometimes growing in clumps, spreading by trailing stems. Flowering stalks reach as high as 50 cm (20 inches) with pendent, greenish-white flowers. Fruit is a dry capsule with shiny black seeds.[5][6][7][4][8][9]

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