Yucca rostrata is an excellent choice for a low water drought tolerant landscape or container.  The Yucca rostrata has silver blue leaves and is a trunk forming specimen which is a stunning compliment for your garden.  It looks fantastic with basically any color you put next to it- greens really pop, blue seem to shine and reds are a personal favorite.  Whichever color you choose to plant it with or even if you plant it on it’s own, it is sure to “wow” and show off in any setting.

The Yucca rostrata can be paired with a variety of low water plants for example as shown below: paired with Ice Plant, Giant Yucca, Santa Rita Cactus and Tecoma stans.  It is an evergreen plant which sends up a bloom stalk in the early summer loaded with white flowers as shown in the first photo.

 The Yucca rostrata requires little if any care other than to make sure when planting, that it gets proper drainage.  It does not (like most things) like to sit in water.  So if you need to, throw some rocks in there and / or plant in crushed granite and as always, make sure the spot/hole has proper drainage.  If planting in a pot, goes without saying…. make sure the pot has a hole.  The Yucca rostrata is a wonderful compliment to most any landscape garden, bed or design paired with other plants or on it’s own.
