Yucca flaccida

This species of Yucca forms rosettes that reach about 3' tall by 5' wide, and can often form colonies. Leaves are up to 2 1/2' long, but only 1 1/2" wide. Open clusters of white to cream flowers are produced in late spring. Native across a wide range of Southeastern U.S. Does well in full sun or partial shade, very frost tolerant. Needs more irrigation than most Yucca species.
