Comments: This yucca features green and yellow variegated foliage that stays in a relatively tight rosette of foliage. Leaves are somewhat soft and flexible, but each leaf has a spine on the tip. For all yuccas be sure to select a site with full sunlight and a very well drained soil. They cannot tolerate wet soil and heavy shade.
