A fairly common yucca, especially in older neighborhoods of Portland. Still handsome and easy. Trunkless and clumping, with stiff, evergreen leaves, to 2.5 ft with thin filaments that shred from the leaf margins providing interest and texture. White flowers appear in summer on 3-6 ft woody stalks. Sun with some summer water for best appearance. Frost hardy in USDA zone 5.

Info

These tough evergreen plants withstand hot sun, dry locations and keep on going! Plant these in those areas just beyond the reach of the sprinklers, or in that strip on the other side of the driveway away from all the water lines. A planting of yucca, with river rock as a ground cover, creates a natural look that is tidy and maintenance free. This species has narrow, spiky green leaves up to 3' long and, in summer, bears large clusters of creamy white flowers on tall woody spikes.
