About This Plant

Sun. Evergreen and ornamental, with stiff, white-margined yucca leaves up to 2′ long. 5′ tall panicles of cream-colored flowers appear in late spring. Extremely drought hardy on thin-soiled local hillsides; makes a great specimen in full sun. Deer eat the fruit and moths are attracted to the nectar; larval food source for Yucca Giant-Skipper Butterfly. Very sharp spikes on the ends of the leaves.

Maintenance

None required. Deer may eat the flower stalks.
