About This Plant
Full sun. Evergreen. An attractive tree-form yucca. Many sources consider it simply a branching variety of the popular Big Bend Yucca (rostrata). Thin blue-gray leaves grow in a cluster, later draping down to form a shaggy coat along the trunk.
Beaked Yucca is a common roadside attraction in West Texas, tolerant of full sun and reflected heat. It makes an excellent choice for exposed rocky slopes and parking medians.
Remove spent flower stalks only; the leaves may be left to form a tidy skirt around the trunk.
