Y is for Yucca @handletteredabcs. It's found in drier climates from southern Canada to Guatemala. The flowers, seeds and fruit are edible. The root is rich in saponins and used as a shampoo in Native American rituals. The leaves have sharp points and are used to hang meat on to cure or as sewing needles. 
Have you ever had "yucca" fries in S. American restaurants? Well, it's actually "yuca" or cassava/manioc, an unrelated root vegetable.
