(Moundlily Yucca, Variegated Moundlily Yucca)
Tall stalks topped with dense clusters of gray-green sword-like leaves lend this tree-like yucca tropical looks.
Moundlily yucca is a common site in gardens where summers are either hot and humid or hot and dry. It inhabits the sandy coastal soils of the southeast from Louisiana to Florida and north to South Carolina, so it’s adapted to both dry soils and locations with high heat. Very large specimens can be seen in old neighborhoods in the far south, as well as those in California, because it...
(Dollhouse Yucca, Spanish-bayonet)
The fine, thin, sharp-tipped leaves of Yucca harrimaniae form tight mounds and spires of rosy-hued ivory flowers nearly indistinguishable from those of Yucca angustissima. In fact, some botanists deem these species synonymous. The small size of the foliage rosettes make this southwestern species ideal for small arid gardens or container plantings. Natural populations exist in desert shrub, grasslands and pinyon-juniper communities from Nevada across to Oklahoma.
In spring to...
Few yucca can compete with the majestic beauty of this stately desert species. Rigid yucca hails from the Mexican states of Chihuahua, Durango and Zacatecas. In the wild it grows along exposed rocky hillsides with dry, perfectly drained soil. Not only is it very drought resistant, but it’s also exceptionally cold hardy considering its southerly origin.
The sharp, linear, upright leaves of rigid yucca are metallic blue-gray. Young plants produce a dense, upright rosette of foliage. In time, they...

(Beaked Yucca, Sapphire Skies Yucca)
This baby blue cultivar made the most coveted of all yuccas that much better. The parent species originates in a small part of Mexico spread over the states of Chihuahua and Coahuila. A separate population is known in the west Texas county of Brewster. Plants prove quite drought resistant and will survive short-term drops in winter temperatures to as low as five to ten degrees.
This new form features a smaller rosette which makes it far better for small scale speaces in both high and low desert...
(Twist-leaf Yucca, Twisted Texas Yucca, Twisted-leaf Yucca)
The large, open rosettes produced by twist-leaf yucca have long, broad blades that twist and curve in an architectural fashion. New blades emerge straight but begin to twist as they age. Tall, leafless flowering stalks topped with branched clusters of ivory, bell-shaped flowers appear from spring to early summer. Native populations are endemic to a small region in Central Texas. They can be found growing in open fields and savannahs where soils are shallow and rocky--typically with a limestone base....
