Common Name: Adam's Needle Family: Asparagaceae (The Asparagus Family)

Yucca rostrata 'Sapphire Skies'
Zoom In Photo:

This selection of the super hardy Y. rostrata has excellent baby blue coloured foliage forming a dome of textural, succulent blue. It will grow to about 16 inches in four years but over time it will develop a trunk and form an amazing, upright, unbranched tree to about five feet. (I have a five footer in my garden that has sailed through six cold winters and it's spectacular!) Needs excellent drainage in full sun.

Geogrpahical Origin:
North America
Native Habitat:
Rocky bajadas, slopes, or ridges that are comprised of limestone gravel.
