The yucca plant is so dangerous with its sharp leaves it is commonly called Spanish Bayonet.

The Spanish planted yucca around their forts and on top of protective walls. Yucca aloifolia grows in thickets reaching 20 feet tall. The trunk is armed with two-foot-long needle-sharp pointed leaves thus earning it the name "Spanish Bayonet". Ft Matanzas National Monument, Florida
