Comments: This yucca makes an excellent ground-covering rosette of foliage because it stays quite low with little or no trunk. New plants form around a mature specimen. Provide full sunlight and well-drained soils for yuccas. Thin, white colored threads are formed along the leaf margins. This yucca does not pose the danger that many of the yuccas because the leaves are soft, although there is a spine at the tip of each leaf.
