This is a small tree-forming yucca. It can grow from 5 to 8 feet tall and 6 feet wide. Its trunk can grow around 5 to 8 inches in diameter. The light green leaves with pale yellow margins grow in a mass radiating near the top and can be 8 to 24 inches long. It loves well drained soil and extreme heat conditions. It produces 3-foot-tall creamy white blooms from April through May. This yucca stays neat in appearance and requires little maintenance.
