Spoon Yucca


Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
This Spoon Yucca comes from a seed collection in Grant County, New Mexico at 6800'. This is a full sun, drought tolerant impressive piece of work when it is mature. The flower spike can reach 10'-15' with thousands of packed creamy florets arising from the center of the well-armored rosette of narrow, bluish, toothed leaves. Eventually these can develop a trunk to 4' or more but pragmatism suggests you find great and justified reward when these young plants grow to be a 3'-4' trunkless plant with lovely blood-letting foliage.
