The beaked yucca is one of the most cold-hardy yuccas, not receiving any damage in temperatures down to zero degrees. Narrow, blue-green leaves have pretty yellow margins. White, bell-shaped flowers emerge on a large central flower stalk in the spring.
While it is quite slow growing, this tree-like yucca makes a large dramatic statement all year round. It is sometimes seen with multiple branching trunks, but usually grows as a single trunk. Old leaves flatten against the trunk, forming a skirt-like appearance. If older leaves are removed, a soft-looking grey trunk is revealed. Plant beaked yucca in an area of the garden or landscape that requires little care, or in a large pot as a dramatic accent.
