    The Mojave yucca, (yucca schidigera) can sprout from seeds when fertilized by the yucca moth, or can clone itself by rhizome extension producing perfect copies of its DNA within the sprouts. The rings created by this method of reproduction keep the plant alive for periods of up to 2,400 years, as estimated in this ACEC (Area of Critical Environmental Concern).

    This is actually considered one plant instead of the many it appears to be.
