Yucca gets a bad rap as a landscape plant and who knows why!! Maybe because it seems common, maybe because it looks different, but this American Beauties native has a lot of landscape attributes that make it a garden must-have! Extremely tough, drought tolerant and willing to put up with the driest, sandiest soils, Yucca forms a rounded, spreading mound of long, pointed, deep green, spear-like foliage that gives rise to a towering flower stem that elevates above the greenery in early June. Big, white, bell-like flowers open along the stem for up to 3′ of its length attracting a range of colorful butterflies to sample their nectar throughout late June and July. Yucca does well in full sun and is equally at home in the perennial garden as well as the shrub border.
