Yucca mixtecana

More Info

Common name: Oaxaca-Puebla Soapwort

One of the more rare trunking species of Yucca native to Mexico where you will find it in the harsh hot, dry, stony hills and slopes of Oaxaca and Puebla. It has narrow concave green leaves, edged with curly white hairs and will eventually form a tall trunk. When it does flower the stem is short at only 30-40cm.  Its certainly one that requires absolutely free draining soil but worth a go as it is very cold hardy…
