One of the most beautiful yucca species, related to Y. rostrata. The 3' rosettes atop an eventual 3-8' trunk resemble the Australian grass trees, xanthorroea, or a dim version of Dasylirion quadrangularis. Leaves are flattened and somewhat triangular, spring-green to nearly turquoise, and flowers are white on stalks to 3' or so above the foliage. Full sun to part shade with good drainage and lean soil. Best with occasional summer water. Found in a few scattered localities, these are from north of Galleana, NL, Mexico, in a most diverse habitat. Though the southern habitat would suggest little frost tolerance, these have so far withstood 5 °F, mid USDA zone 7.

Info

Its amazing that this insanely spectacular Yucca is hardy to cold and thrives in the Pacific Northwest. Native to high elevations of northeast Mexico it has proven to be an excellent plant in our climate as well. Fine twisted blue leaves up to 3' long erupt from the center forming a symmetrical sphere in time to 5' across. With age it develops a trunk. Full sun and very well drained soil with occasional irrigation in summer to speed growth during the hottest weather. We have yet to see this yucca in bloom- but we assume it will be as spectacular as the foliage.

(syn: Yucca rostrata var. linearis) Imagine taking the wonderful Yucca rostrata and making the blue leaves narrower but longer (to 32"). If you can envision this atop a short phone pole, then you can image Yucca linearifolia. This deer-resistant native to Texas and adjacent northern Mexico was long considered a form of Yucca rostrata but has been elevated to species status...at least by some taxonomists. This is surprisingly little known in cultivation, but we aim to help change that. Expect a 4' tall specimen in 10 years. Yucca blooms are a hummingbird favorite.

Can get to 5' tall with very narrow long leaves creating a striking plant for the well drained garden or container. This Texas or northern Mexican native should be hardy in the Willamette Valley and Seattle area with sharp drainage. Supposedly a very rare plant so we hope we have enough.
