Plant Details: Adam's Needle
5 - 9
This Yucca is a very low maintenance evergreen plant with erect and spreading sharp pointed leaves. The leaves remain basal (at ground level)and the flowering stem reaches straight up to present the 6-8'High inflorescence of beautiful white large flowers. As many as 60 / 3-4" flowers can grace this spike in late spring. It does not develop a trunk. It prefers well-drained to dry or sandy soils it does not do well in excessively wet soils. It is good for massing or as a single focal point. One of the most tolerant plant to harsh conditions as far as drought is concerned.
We also offer the Y. filamentosa 'color guard', which is a gold-centered variegated form. These are $24.00 for a very nice 3 gal. size.
