Yucca

Yuccas can be found over much of North America, and the architectural assertiveness of their strong, swordlike blades is prized by gardeners. Each year, stout leafless stems bear large clusters of waxy, alabaster-colored floral pendants. Needing little or no maintenance and thriving best in well drained soil, these toughs will not complain where summers are hot or humid, or long and dry. Zone 5/6.

<i>Yucca dismetiana</i> ‘Blue Boy’

Bathed in icy gray-green and powder-blue with a dusky-purple overlay, this handsome pastel-hued

treasure manifests a tough disposition. Rigid evergreen leaves with pointed tips and fine-toothed margins craft a rounded barrel-like rosette that develops slowly, its amethyst coloration intensifying as the weather heats up. Pendulous, waxy white flowers draped on stout panicles deliver late summer sparkle. Unfazed by meddlesome deer, drought, moisture and humidity, ‘Blue Boy’ can harmonize with Melianthus major and Festuca ‘Superba’.

Blooms July–August

Size: 4' 0" – 6' 0" high x 3' 0" wide.

Zone 7/8.

<i>Yucca filamentosa</i> ‘Color Guard’

Considered one of the most attractive variegated Yuccas, this Japanese cultivar’s stiff spiky foliage comprises a mesmerizing close-set evergreen rosette. Achieving an added luster when long, curly white margin fibers seem to capture the moonlight, each spine-tipped leaf is etched by celadon green margins and a bold, creamy-gold central stripe, which becomes brighter in midsummer, but blushes with a rosy coloration most of the year. ‘Color Guard’s grand silhouette can stand alone, be juxtaposed with Plectranthus ‘Longwood Silver’s soft felted foliage or be planted en masse.

Blooms June–July

Size: 3' 0" – 6' 0" high x 3' 0" – 4' 0" wide.

Hardy to zone 5.

<i>Yucca</i> ‘Garlands Gold’

This cultivars stiff, spiky leaves comprise a closely set, evergreen rosette thats most effective planted en masse. Outlined in green and marked down the center with a bold, creamy gold stripe. the foliage flexes slightly and an added luster is achieved when long, silvery margin fibers seem to uniquely capture the moonlight! Strength is spotlighted when Garlands Gold is partnered with Plectranthus Longwood Silvers felted foliage.

Blooms July–August

Size: 5' 0" high x 3' 0" wide.

Zone 5/6.

Yucca rostrata ‘Sapphire Skies’ (P-1471)

Each $9.75

AVAILABLE MAY 2021

A beguiling sculptural rosette of powder blue, thin pointed blades, year-round good looks and exceptional hardiness is what this shrubby, fine textured Yucca has to offer. Relatively short, flexible leaves forge a luminous specimen well suited for a vessel or the dry garden.

Selected by Sean Hogan of Cistus Nursery from seed he collected in northern Mexico, it will eventually form an upright unbranched plant that prefers to bake in a hot sunny spot with sharp drainage and alkaline soil, while protection from excessive cold-season water and wind helps ensure a successful overwintering.

Blooms July – August.

Size: 4' 0" high x 3' 0" wide.

Hardy to zone 6.

PLEASE READ THIS NOTICE PRIOR TO PLACING YOUR ORDER!

Due to the unprecedented influx of orders, phone calls and emails that we have been receiving, our small family run business of not quite a dozen people, is sadly behind at this time.

Please know our team is working diligently to catch up. Orders are currently taking up to 5 weeks to review. To be as fair as possible to our valued customers, we are processing orders in the order they were received. We appreciate your patience and hope that you can accept our heartfelt apology for any inconvenience.
