Yuccas can be found over much of North America, and the architectural assertiveness of their strong, sword-like 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 sharp draining soil, these rugged evergreen plants will not complain where summers are hot or humid, or long and dry.
A beguiling sculptural rosette of thin, pointed steel-blue blades, year-round good looks and exceptional hardiness is what this shrubby fine textured Yucca has to offer. Relatively short, flexible leaves forge a spectacular specimen well-suited for a container or the dry garden. Selected by Sean Hogan of Cistus Nursery from seed he collected in northern Mexico, it will eventually become an upright unbranched plant that prefers to bake in a hot sunny spot with alkaline soil, while protection from excessive cold-season moisture and wind help ensure a successful overwintering.
