This dramatic architectural plant is one of the most beautiful variegated yuccas on the market. Its sword-shaped leaves bear bold central stripes of bright canary-yellow against a rich celadon edge. In cool weather, margins are tinged pink, and the entire yellow stripe turns rose-colored on many of the leaves, lasting through early spring. Plants grow to 2 feet wide and nearly as tall. Branched clusters of nodding, creamy-white bells open in mid-summer on stout stems that reach 6 feet tall.
Care: Provide rich soil in full sun for best growth. However, plants are widely adaptable to different light, soil, and moisture conditions.
Propagation: Remove rooted suckers in spring. Take root cuttings in winter.
