Yucca Rostrata Succulent for Sale from Orange County Wholesale Nursery

Colors are fun to play with in the garden. Use the blue leaves of the Yucca Rostrata to transition to a blue hued garden. Focus on the Rostrata for a focal point, an Agave ‘Blue Glow’ or ‘Celsii Nova’ for medium height, and finish off with Sedum Clavatum and Turquoise river rocks. Easily one of our favorite drought tolerant plants. The Yucca Rostrata, or the Big Bend Yucca, is an extremely slow growing yucca from western Texas and Northern Mexico, receiving its common name from the region. Its beautiful blue grey foliage radiates spherically around the center trunk, like an exploding star. Each spear like leaf is stiff, and carries a slight yellow margin. In late spring, like most yuccas, large white flowers appear on mature plants. Warm, hot, sunny, well drained areas will give you immediate satisfaction with this plant. Extremely hardy, even preferring acidic soil, and tolerant to around zero degrees.

Black Rose Aeonium
