We are very pleased to offer a new species of yucca that was recently discovered by plantsman Eric Keith and subsequently named in 2003 from a few small populations (less than 2,000 plants) in Newton and Jasper Counties in east Texas. In the wild, Yucca cernua occurs on acidic clay soils in open piney forests. In the garden, our 2009 planted specimens have made lovely, solitary, 2' tall x 4' wide rosettes of glaucous foliage. When mature, the clumps are topped with dramatic 10' tall flower spikes of large white bells. After flowering, the clump often produces additional basal rosettes. Yucca cernua is a USDA Threatened and Endangered candidate which, if adopted, will limit distribution, propagation, and free market access via the "government knows best" philosophy.
