Fascinating, unusual, dramatic, exotic...our floor-standing yucca is not the sort of plant that gets overlooked. Having expressed their interest, the question most people ask is "What is it?" That's because until fairly recently, yuccas were almost unknown in Britain. Their natural home is in the semi-desert regions of Texas, New Mexico and Arizona. A climate that's hot, dry and dusty suits them down to the ground. Add a few clumps of tumbleweed and a lonesome cowboy riding into the sunset and they're in their element. Which is why if you do see an organic version in this country it will probably be in the conservatory of a large country house. No doubt with a team of gardeners in attendance - yuccas require quite a lot of TLC. Looking 100% a pukka yucca, ours is no trouble at all. A real statement piece and conversation starter, its architectural presence makes it ideal in a living room, hall or office reception area.
