(syn: Yucca sp. 68-2) Yucca gloriosa 'Tiny Star' is a cute, but very slow-growing selection of the Southeast US native Yucca gloriosa. This selection was first brought into the US from Japan by plant explorer Barry Yinger in the '70s. This dazzling yucca has labored in obscurity due to its very slow growth habit. Our 15-year-old clump of Yucca 'Tiny Star' has finally reached 30" tall x 4' wide and has never formed an offset. Each leaf is mostly creamy gold, edged in a narrow green band. Although it must eventually flower, no one has ever observed the blessed event. This is truly a spectacular evergreen!
