Individually priced specimen plants,buy the plant in the picture.
Yucca linearifolia, also called Y.linearis, is a best selling plant.
The Yucca linearifolia forms a cluster of 3-5 smaller trunks around the central trunk and can grow up to 200-250 cm. This plant can withstand temperatures down to -15 degrees Celsius. Also this plant has some unique qualities that makes it different from other species. It is a yucca which forms multiple trunks at the base that can be increased via cuttings. So if through circumstances the base of the trunk is rotten, it can be cut off and the plant will reshoot from the base. Another remarkable quality is that if the growing point is damaged it will grow new heads from the trunk.It is possible, and common, that in cultivation through other habitat environments or light, the green leaf color changes into blue. Frost resistant till -18C.
Yucca filiferaFrom £24.95
Yucca filifera is one of the largest and fast growing yuccas, it branches highly after about 3-4 m and can reach heights of 9 m with a trunk of 1.5 m wide. Y.filifera grows in northeastern Mexico. Y.filifera is stated to be cold resistant to around -8C but there are specimens around the UK that seem to have resisted much lower temperatures so it may be under rated if sited correctly. Kept dry and in a favourable sunny spot they can certainly take a few degrees more.
Yucca carnerosanaFrom £19.95
This species from northeastern Mexico and western Texas grows into a massive plant. A very hardy plant that can take severe freezes if kept dry in winter.
Yucca treculeana is found in several northern states of Mexico and further limited to southern Texas all the way to the coast of the Gulf of Mexico. It grows usually with a single trunk, but branches out sometimes. It can reach a height of 2-7m. The leaves are dark green to blue and in natural habitat an average 80-100cm long and 5cm wide, but can in cultivation reach lengths of 120-140cm. For most people it is difficult to distinguish similar species, such as Y.torreyi, Y. schidigera and Y. faxoniana, but Y. treculeana is separated by its lack of abundant marginal leaf filaments. When trimmed the trunk has a dark reddish brown colour and deep irregular furrows. It is a good candidate for cold climates (-15C), as to our experience over the years it recovers very often even when the head is frozen, or rotted away.
Yucca faxonianaFrom £19.95
Yucca faxoniana is a large imposing plant which mainly grows in western Texas around the Sierra Blanca region and the bordering Mexican States of Coahuile and Chihuahua. Y.faxoniana plants can reach a height of 6-10 m.
It is cold hardy from -18C for longer periods to -23C for short periods. For those who tried Yucca carnerosana and failed, Y.faxoniana is very similar, but being from the high mountains of Texas, is really more frost resistant
A common species of yucca native to the deserts of the southwestern United States and northwestern Mexico, from southeastern California north to Utah, east to western Texas and south to Sonora and Chihuahua.
The species gets its common name “banana yucca” from its banana-shaped fruit.
