Yucca elephantipes
Yucca elephantipes
An erect evergreen with sword-like leaves in a myriad of colours; blue-green bordered with a wide margin that changes from gold to a rich cream. Forms a rounded clump over ten years and as it matures, throws a spike of showy cream flowers late summer and autumn. A choice specimen and accent plant.

Boldly contrasting garden and patio plant.

Uses: Excellent border and patio plant, worthy of a special place in the dry garden. Stems tips are prickly - take care.
Position: Full sun and freely draining soil. Coming from desert regions it'll handle considerable heat and cold, but it does not appreciate wet feet.
Care: Little needed, just a tidy up from time to time to remove spent flower stalks, and a little water when young.
