About

Yucca rostrata is a wonderful desert plant from eastern Mexico and Texas. The leaves are long, thin and powdery blue and end in a small terminal spine. They form a hemisperical rosette that on a mature plant stands on top of a woody trunk that branches and can reach 4m in its native habitat.  When mature it has flower spikes of cream, bell-shaped flowers. Hardy to -15 if in full sun and very well drained soil.

Origin

Mexico

Planting and care

Best planted in full sun, in very well drained soil and kept dry during winter. Before planting add grit to the soil and dig it in. It is also best to gravel around the plant as this not only makes the plant look better, but it also keeps the foliage off the damp soil and keeps down weeds. This Yucca will make a great pot plant, just use a good soil based compost, add a third and keep dry during winter.
