Yucca is a tough and attractive plant that makes a great addition to almost any landscape. It produces clusters of white flowers held above green or variegated strap-shaped leaves. Yucca requires full sun, and thrives in sandy soils, drought, heat, and humidity.
Spanish bayonet, moundlily yucca, and Adam's needle are Florida natives, and are readily available at most nurseries.
With their coarse texture and odd shapes, yuccas make great focal points or specimen plants. They come in many sizes and often have sharply pointed leaves, so be sure to plant them in the right place.
