About This Plant

Morning sun or light shade. The pale, bluish foliage makes a striking specimen in a shady landscape, with cream-colored bloom stalks in spring. Pale-leaf is generally more drought tolerant than soft-leaf yucca, with which it is often confused. It grows as a small stemless rosette, with leaves soft and flexible enough to be placed safely in the garden. It may produce offsets; give it good drainage.

Maintenance

Occasional grooming to remove spent foliage, not required. The leaves bear spiny tips, but the tips can be easily snipped off around pedestrian pathways.
