Description for Yucca
Bright green attractive foliage and the ability to withstand long periods of drought make the yucca an excellent choice for just about any home garden.
Yucca growing isnt just for indoors. The yuccas plantâ€™s sword-like leaves add a distinctive look to any area, including the landscape. It is a perennial, evergreen shrub that comes in several species.
More than 20 species of yucca exist. Coloration on yucca plants range from green to bluish with variegations of cream, yellow and white, depending on the cultivar. Yucca plants grow on canes, or large, woody stems.
As it is a native of the southwestern United States, it thrives in soil that drains well and can be in full sun. It is also able to withstand temperatures as cold as 10 F. (-12 C.), so you can grow a yucca plant in many different climates.
The creamy-white flowers bloom best in full sun, during mid to late summer, with some yucca growing as tall as 8 feet and leaves that reach about 2 and half feet in length.
