Originating from W. Texas, Arizona, N. Mexico
Usually single-trunked yucca, with arm-like branches, bears spherical heads of very thin green leaves with white margins, fine filaments at their bases and terminating in a sharp tip. The dead leaves remain attached to the trunk for many years, forming an attractive skirt. It produces a flowering stem, sometimes many flowering stems from one head, with panicles of scented white/cream flowers.
It can grow to a considerable size in the wild, up to 9m tall and is a spectacular sight when in flower. It is in fact the official flower of New Mexico.
Grow in full sun in soil with sharp drainage.
Height and spread after 4 – 5 years 80cm x 50cm
