This deer-resistant, hummingbird friendly yucca hails from the San Luis Potosi region of Mexico where it can be found growing up to 8,000' elevation. Yucca decipiens is painful...make that also painfully slow growing. With age, (yours and your grandkids') Yucca decipiens will make a massive 30' tall, candelabra-like branched, single trunk specimen. The 2' long x 2" wide stiff, olive green, bayonet-like leaves are often edged with thread-like filifers...great for turf wars, frog-gigging, and when you just can't find a thumb tack. Expect a 3' tall plant in 10 years and a 15' tall plant in your lifetime.
