Most folks think of yuccas as only sharp plants, but one that’s sharp without being sharp is our Southeast US native Yucca x recurvifolia…a naturally occurring hybrid between Yucca aloifolia and Yucca flaccida. Here is the clone Yucca x recurvifolia ‘Variegata’ in the gardens this week. Hardiness is Zone 6b/7a and south.
Here’s one of our weird hybrids that just finished flowering…a cross of Yucca cernua x Yucca recurvifolia, that has a pendulous inflorescence. We think it’s pretty cool, but would anyone actually buy it?
