Introducing the Yucca Gloriosa 5Ltr, a striking and architectural addition to any garden with its bold foliage and dramatic presence. Also known as the Spanish Dagger, this evergreen perennial adds a touch of desert charm to borders, containers, or as a striking focal point in your outdoor space.
Reaching a height of approximately 1.5 to 2 meters and spreading 1 to 1.5 meters wide, Yucca Gloriosa creates a bold vertical accent with its tall, sword-like leaves that form a rosette pattern.
While Yucca Gloriosa is primarily grown for its foliage, it can produce tall spikes of creamy white flowers in late spring to early summer, adding an extra dimension of beauty to its architectural form.
For optimal growth, plant your Yucca Gloriosa in a sunny and well-draining position, preferably in sandy or gravelly soil. It thrives in a sheltered location and is tolerant of drought once established. Planting can be done year-round, but spring is generally the best time to plant to allow the roots to establish before the growing season begins.
Yucca Gloriosa does not require frequent feeding, but applying a balanced fertilizer in spring can help promote healthy growth and flowering. While not specifically known for attracting pollinators, Yucca Gloriosa can still provide habitat and shelter for small insects, contributing to overall biodiversity in your garden.
