This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
I have been playing around in Strange Town a fair bit recently, and it seemed to me that we are fairly short of seasonal plants that look right in a desert garden. So, I decided that my Sims would like a yucca plant.

The Yucca is a hardy and drought tolerant member of the Lily family. It is native to the USA, but can be found in gardens around the world. I see a lot of them in gardens around where I live, for instance.

My Yucca carries its flower spike in Spring and Summer. In Autumn and Winter it is just the leaves, and being hardy, it does have a snowy state. My Yucca is cloned from the Easy Shade Bay Tree, but has been re-categorised as a shrub and made non- lightening strikeable. It has a "smell the flower" interaction similar to my lavender, but only available during Spring and Summer. The flower spike is a complicated structure, so it is pretty high poly. However, my mid-range computer has no problem coping with multiple yuccas on a lot.

The Yucca is fully recolourable and I have included a variegated leaf recolour with a pink flower. Both files have been compressorised.

The Yucca is available under Garden Center/Shrubs for $120.

Texture Attributions

As always, I have used photo texture, as follows:
