About:

Create style, colour, shape and height in your home landscape with the Living Architecture Range. Drought tolerant and hardy, the range includes a striking collection of sterling Yucca, Kalanchoe, Agave, Echeveria and Cordylines. Generate contrast in height and distinct shape, plus feature year round colour by combining a selection of the Living Architecture Range into your yard. The range allows you to create a spectacular low maintenance home landscape in any size, shape or garden position. Perfect for long thin spaces, round or oval shapes, sloping embankments, or fence lines. These varieties of plants look superb in sleek pots around the patio or pool and excellent as a smart boarder around the back deck or driveway. The Living Architecture Range is available in Bunnings stores throughout Queensland. Yucca Silver Star is an outstanding structural plant boasting green and silver variegated leaves. Each sword-shaped leaf has a silver mid-stripe with two narrow green stripes on the edge. The variegated foliage gives this yucca a truly striking quality that will add visual wow factor to your garden. The silver and green pointed foliage forms a tall yet narrow sculptural shape that is ideal for containers. Yucca Silver Star is an impressive show piece when placed in a large ceramic pot or planted near a water feature, around pools and on the patio. The water-wise plant looks great when planted in groups and will complement Mediterranean-style architecture. Yucca Silver Star is a great plant to use as a focal point indoors, at the entrance of your home, in entertaining areas and in the garden.
