We love this splendid variegated selection of our Southeast US native, the deer-resistant Yucca aloifolia. This has long been one of our favorite garden plants; however, propagation difficulties had limited our offering of this gem...but not any longer. Each 6" thick trunk can reach 7' tall and is adorned with rigid bayonet-like leaves of medium green, surrounded by a bicolor margin of light green and edged in creamy yellow. When plants of Yucca aloifolia 'Variegata' reach 3-4' tall, they are topped with 2' tall flower plumes of white bells in early summer...simply stunning and a hummingbird treat! Although it handled -9 degrees F in 1984/85, it seems to dislike extended periods at or below 0 degrees F.
