(syn: Yucca rostrata var. linearis) Imagine taking the wonderful Yucca rostrata and making the blue leaves narrower but longer (to 32"). If you can envision this atop a short phone pole, then you can image Yucca linearifolia. This deer-resistant native to Texas and adjacent northern Mexico was long considered a form of Yucca rostrata but has been elevated to species status...at least by some taxonomists. Yucca linearifolia is surprisingly little known in cultivation, but we aim to help change that. Expect a 4' tall specimen in 10 years. The white bell-shaped Yucca blooms are a hummingbird favorite.
