About

Yucca rostrata is a wonderful desert plant from eastern Mexico and Texas. The leaves are long and thin and powdery blue in colour and ending in a small terminal spine they form a hemisperical rosette that on older plants stand atop a woody trunk that branches and can reach 4m in its native habitat. Its common name comes from its fruit that resembles the beak of a bird. When mature it has flower spikes of cream bell shaped flowers. Hardy to -15 if in full sun and very well drained soil or makes a great pot plant but keep dry in winter.
