It's a rare occasion when a variegated plant sports green and actually becomes a better garden plant, but that is exactly what happened with Yucca 'Lone Star'. This green reversion of the deer-resistant Yucca 'Tiny Star' has dazzled both us and visitors with what is unquestionably the best green yucca in our extensive collection. The longer we grow this, the more we think this might actually be a Yucca gloriosa hybrid. Yucca 'Lone Star' makes a 4' tall x 4' wide specimen in 4 years, with 2' long x 3.5" wide leaves that radiate out from a thick central stalk. In late summer the clumps are topped with 3' tall spikes of large, hanging, white, bell-shaped flowers...simply stunning and a hummingbird delight.
