Comments: This is a tall growing yucca with a big rosette of relatively soft leaves, but still have a spine on the tip of each leaf. Mature plants can produce tall thick trunks in arid landscapes where temperatures are mild. Provide well drained soils and full sunlight for yuccas. Yuccas can tolerate some salt spray and grow quite well in coastal sands.
