Yucca was probably THE classic house plant of the 80's; and, as with other notable things from that time, it is making a resounding, retro-cool comeback due to its angular, good looks and laid back care requirements.

Yucca elephantipes (syn. Yucca gigantean, Yucca guatemalensis) has long, sword-like, yellow-green, arching leaves, which grow in a rosette from the top of a bare trunk. Unlike other Yucca varieties, the leaves are spineless.

Perfect for adding some life-enhancing, indoor greenery, Yucca work really well displayed alongside other desert plants such as Dracaena, Beaucarnea and Cordyline (all part of the same family); add a cactus or two to create a distinctly chilled-out, 'Western' style vibe.

Horty Hints

Drop-dead gorgeous! Older leaves will naturally yellow and dry-up, however they won't drop. Help keep it tidy by gently, but firmly pulling the dead leaves downwards towards the floor.

While the leaves don't look too dangerous, they are stiff with sharp points. Take care when pruning.

Desert-dweller! The Yucca elephantipes is a native of the desert, and will not suffer from lack of humidity.
