About:

About:

A common dilemma for home gardeners is finding a plant that is going to break up a predominately green landscape. The remarkable foliage of yucca desmetiana will help you achieve excellent colour contrast in the garden with a plant that you don't have to look after. This exotic yucca features green foliage that changes to an unusual burgundy colour as the leaves mature. Yucca desmetiana has a slightly different form to typical yucca varieties. The slow growing plant looks like a tower coming out of the garden with a collection of leaves curving gracefully out from the trunk. It's a very hardy plant once established, making it a fantastic option for a low maintenance, water wise garden. This architectural accent plant makes a wonderful feature in the garden, whether planted in groups or singularly, plus the interesting foliage colour makes it a great choice for growing in a decorative pot on your veranda.
