Blue-beaked Yucca

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.

Yucca rostrata ‘Sapphire Skies’ (P-1471)

Each 9.75

AVAILABLE LATE SPRING 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.
