Originating from Mexico.
An imposing and spectacular yucca, superficially resembling the Joshua tree. This is surely a rocket amongst other desert-style plants; fast-growing and upright with a massive and tapered trunk. The short and stout leaves are a dark green colour, sometimes edged with creamy, curled fibers, and terminating in a sharp spike. Usually growing tall before flowering with a unique pendulous inflorescence of many creamy white blooms, it develops a branched crown once doing so. Very hardy and easy to grow in pots or in the ground in full sun and free-draining soil.
Height and spread after 4 – 5 years 1.5m x 80cm
Semi mature height and spread after 10 – 11 years 3m x 80cm
Potential height and spread after 25 years 8m x 2m, width is dependent on flowering and subsequent branching.
