Yucca can be found natively in the United States and Mexico. It is best suited to arid conditions and is an elegant addition to a rock garden.
Large spikes of cream-colored, bell-shaped flowers bloom in summer and complement the dark green foliage, which bears unusual tendrils. Good as a specimen or planted in a group where there is room, this stately perennial lends an exotic appearance when in bloom.
