(syn: Yucca rostrata var. thompsoniana) This is one of my favorite tree yuccas. As the plant ages, the spectacular single trunk will be attractively adorned with dried foliage flattened to the trunk, and topped with a toupee of narrow, blue-grey foliage...most closely resembling a spray-painted '60s afro hairdo on a tall Al Gore-shaped fence post. In late spring, the deer-resistant Yucca thompsoniana is topped with 4' spikes of white, hummingbird friendly flowers...COOL! Our plants are grown from a Yucca Do seed collection in Terrell County, Texas, just east of the town of Dryden.
