Yucca rigida is another of the beautiful blue-leaf deer-resistant species which is often confused with Yucca rostrata. The 30" long, powder blue leaves adorn this 12' tall upright grower from the northern Mexican states of Chihuahua, Coahuila, Durango, and Zacatecas. In comparison to Yucca rostrata, the leaves of Yucca rigida are generally wider, less twisted, and less flexible than Yucca other words, more anti-social. The 2' tall flower spike, adorned with pendent white bells that attract hummingbirds, is also held slightly down in the foliage as compared to Yucca rostrata. Yucca rigida is a stunning specimen plant for the dry garden.
