This wonderful deer-resistant, North American native yucca was originally shared in the mid-1980s by the JC Raulston Arboretum. Each 2-3' wide, trunked clump reaches 48" in height in 10 years. The blue-green, rigid leaves are bordered with a wide margin that emerges gold, then changes to a rich cream. The good color contrast holds all season! In midsummer, this stunning yucca is topped with 3' tall spikes with attractive, large, white, bell-shaped flowers...a hummingbird favorite. Yucca gloriosa 'Variegata' is a great addition to the perennial border and deserves a special place in the dry garden!
