Super-duper tough & drought tolerant! Add contrast & year-round color with this gorgeous variegated yucca hardy to zone 4! Forms a 2-3’ high & 1-2’ wide rosette - the perfect size for any garden. Bright green leaves boast a vivid yellow central stripe that turns pink in cold weather! Each rosette produces a single flower spike in late Spring-Summer reaching up to 6’ high & dripping with pendulous iridescent-white blooms. Perfect for brightening up a shady patch in a low-water garden or as a plant-it-and-forget-it specimen for a dry or rocky hillside. Performs beautifully in poor soil, but please provide good drainage for a happy plant. Little-no maintenance is required beyond removing spent flower spikes. Makes a stunning container specimen.
