The Golden Sword Yucca is the perfect plant for those hot and dry spots in your garden. No matter how hot, how dry, or how poor the soil, this plant will thrive and grow, bringing a bright splash of yellow and green striped leaves all year round. In summer older plants produce tall spikes of many creamy-white flowers, making a spectacular and unexpected display. Xeric gardens – ones that don’t need watering – are increasingly popular, and this is the perfect choice. A selection of a native plant, it is also perfect for ‘all-native’ plantings, as well as ideal for containers and planters too. Plant it among gravel and rocks for easy color, and never have to worry about watering again.

  • Tall, leathery leaves of yellow, edged in green
  • Dramatic tall flowers spikes of white flowers in late summer
  • Sun loving and thrives in poor soil too
  • Resists both cold and drought
  • Perfect for native-plant gardens and xeric gardens

Your Golden Sword Yucca will thrive in any sunny spot. It will grow in all kinds of soil, from sand to clay, just as long as they don’t stay wet. It is almost never bothered by pests or diseases, and deer leave it alone too. It thrives at the sea shore or near the beach, and salt-spray doesn’t bother it. It is perfect in containers, and if they dry out, no problem. Just make sure the pot has drainage, and only water once the soil is completely dry. Hardy even in zone 5, this plant is an easy way to bring an exotic touch to a northern garden.
