One of the best of the Yucca group - not as untidy in age as some other Y. filamentosa group.
Bright golden margins to the mid green dagger-like leaves. The leaves - as with all Yuccas - are very pointed and sharp at the ends.
The individual leaves can grow to around 60cm long - 2 ft. Not clump forming as with other Yuccas, but more of a branched shrub, with rosettes of foliage sprouting from main stem.
Flower in late summer through to mid autumn, with white flowers after pink-purple buds. The flowers are set on long upright shoots that extend above the foliage base.
Yucca gloriosa is suited to growing in patio pot, but be aware of the spiky leaves - especially with children to think about.
This yucca is best propagated by 'root cuttings' in mid winter.
