Yuccas and agaves

  Checkout  

Items: 0 - € 0.00
Useful as architectural plants with their striking leaves and beautiful colours, yuccas and agaves hail from desert regions of the Americas. Many are very tough, surviving very low night temperatures in their native habitat. Some remain small, but some, such as the Yucca rostrata can attain several metres in height! Their stunning architecture is very evocative and varies from the spikey Agave to the soft, unusual grass-like plumes of the Dasylirion. Browse this page for a variety of plants to provide stunning focal points for your garden!

Each is around 0,5m (18") tall and wide and each robust clump is topped at maturity with a phallic flower bud that enlarges into a 8cm (3") diameter, 6m (20') tall flower spike!

Remember to keep this plant well-drained and dry in the winter months.
