Image of Yucca gloriosa var. recurvifolia

James H. Schutte

The popular and widely planted Yucca gloriosa var. recurvifolia is admired for its exceptional adaptability, elegant upright habit and prolific flower display. It originates from the dunes and gravelly soils along the Gulf Coastal Plain and the South Atlantic Coast but is equally at home in the arid desert gardens of the American Southwest.

Young plants produce bold dense rosettes of broad, strappy, deep blue-gray leaves. These have sharp tips and are so long they bend downward....

(Bright Star Yucca, Curve-leaf Yucca, Curveleaf yucca)

Beautiful in foliage and flower color and an architecturally magnificent plant, Bright Star yucca is also an adaptable landscape succulent evergreen perennial. It originates from along the American Southeast's coastal plains but even excels in arid desert gardens. Officially designated with cultivar name 'Walbristar', it was selected as a mutant basal pup plant off of another curve-leaf yucca in 2001.

Plants produce bold globular rosettes of broad, strappy, mid-green leaves with wide lemon yellow...

(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...

(Bluestem Yucca, Yucca Cane)

This is one big beautiful yucca! The tree-like bluestem yucca is a fast-growing tropical evergreen. A tall, multi-trunked plant, it has a coarse, architectural appeal that makes it a standout for western, frost-free gardens. This native of Mexico and Central America is also tough, drought tolerant and easy to grow if given the right growing conditions.

Plants are evergreen and bear dense clusters of coarse, stiff, lance-shaped leaves that whorl around upright stems. The thick brown trunk-like...

(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...

(Gulf Coast Yucca)

This yucca is a true southern belle that offers luminescent blooms that light up warm spring nights. It is a native of dry sandy uplands from eastern Texas and Oklahoma to northeastern Louisiana and southern Arkansas. It forms a low, trunkless rosette and inhabits open grasslands. This is a little known species in horticulture but a promising garden plant for southern gardens plagued with high heat and humidity.

The downy or pubescent flower stalk is what really defines this plant, blooming...

(Pale Yucca, Pale-leaf Yucca, Pale-leaved Yucca)

Twistleaf yucca is an uncommon evergreen perennial in commerce yet incredibly beautiful due to its cool blue-green foliage. It is native to Texas but found only in a few small areas in 13 counties where the Blackland prairies exist.

The broad, blue-green blades of this tough plant form attractive rosettes that shine all season long. This yucca blooms in late spring with tall spires of up to one hundred flowers. They are night-pollinated by moths, which are lured by the luminescent white flowers...

(Rigid Yucca)

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)

A spiky urchin-like sphere of bayonet-shaped evergreen leaves tops the shaggy trunk of this dramatic and coveted tree-like yucca. Native to northern Mexico and western Texas, it bears a bristling globe of hundreds of long, narrow, blue-green leaves on a compact, typically head-high trunk. The leaves are twisted, adding further ornamental interest. The trunk is coated with the remains of old leaves, giving it a furry look. Mature plants produce showy spikes of white flowers in spring. The blooms attract...
