 This yucca is similar in appearance to others in the species. It possesses the familiar rosette of dark green sword-shaped leaves at the base of the plant and tall stalks that bloom jetting upward out of the center of it.

The rosette stands only about 2 feet tall, and the flower stalks rise 3-4 feet. The spread of the rosette will be less than 2 feet. It's good to keep this diameter in mind when plotting where you will be planting the yucca.

The bright edge yucca got its name because of the color of its leaves. The plants offers the traditional dark green leaves of the Adams Needle yucca with a bright yellow ribbon around the edges.

The stalks bear creamy white bell-shaped flowers that have a sweet smell. These are night blooming flowers, so the smell becomes stronger as the night progresses.

The flower aroma is essential to the pollination of the yucca. The sweet scent attracts the yucca moth, which pollinates the plants and continues their life cycle.

The flowers will not start to appear until the plant is mature, which can take a couple of years, but you’ll be glad you did. Once it does begin flowering it will start in spring and continue all the way through early fall.
