Description

Yucca 'Golden Sword' is a stunning, easy-to-grow evergreen Yucca. All year round it bears a basal rosette of impressive, sword-shaped golden-yellow leaves with a dark blue-green edge. The two colours contrast perfectly. Not as upright as some yuccas, it grows to up to 150cm in height, and 90cm in width. The leaves are at their best from autumn to spring. In July and August, mature forms of this golden-yellow needle palm produce a 200cm tall spike, covered with nodding, fragrant, creamy white bell-shaped flowers. The leaf tips of Yucca flaccida 'Golden Sword' may sometimes droop with age, which creates a dramatic, bushy effect. 

This beautiful plant creates dramatic height to a flower bed or border, and is often planted in in patio containers. It makes a superb architectural feature or accent plant for your garden, particularly if it is mulched with gravel, and it is a regular feature of many sub-tropical and Mediterranean-style gardens. It is considered so good as a garden plant, that the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) have awarded it a coveted Award of Garden Merit.
