The most popular of all the Mexican Yucca’s as an indoor pot plant. Makes an outstanding feature plant bearing long, green strap-like leaves up the trunk to eventually form a lovely round headed exotic looking, trunked plant. Prefers full sun and good drainage. Evergreen.

Plant Care: 

A lovely structural plant for either containers or dry gardens. Plant in well-drained soil. Feed once a year with Texture Plants 12 month planting food. Strip old leaves off as they grow up. If planting in colder areas ensure that the plants are very dry during winter to avoid frost damage. When the plant gets too tall you can chop off the top and it should re-shoot again from the trunk.
