Yucca aloifolia makes a dramatic landscape statement, its dark green, stiff, dagger-like leaves projecting from thick, inclining trunks.

Spikes of bright white blossoms appear in springtime to late summer depending on the year in the centre of the plant above the foliage. Makes a wonderful accent at entryways or in a shrub border.

Plants eventually form attractive, multi-stemmed clumps. High salt tolerance makes this plant ideal for seaside plantings.

Native to the USA.

Prefers a well-drained soil in an open sunny position, drought and frost resistant. Tolerant to coastal exposures.

Although seed can be sown most of the year in many parts of Australia seed is generally best sown in spring, avoid the coldest and hottest months of the year. The optimum germination temperature for germination is around 16-22°C

To assist in the uptake of moisture for germination to occur seed is best soaked in warm water for 24 hours prior to sowing.

Warm water soak is recommended for this species.

  1. Place the seed in a container with warm water (around 25°C) and allow to soak 24hrs.
  2. Sow 5mm deep.
  3. Water with fine mist spray to avoid disturbance of the seed.
  4. Place in a warm shaded or semi shaded position to avoid dying out.
  5. Keep warm & moist, avoid drying out or waterlogging the growing mix.
  6. Germination should occur in 14-28 days @ 16-22°C

General note: Seeds of many plants are dormant and require specific conditions or pre-treatment for germination.
Do not be too hasty to discard seed that does not germinate, seeds will often lay dormant until the conditions are similar to their natural requirements for germination to occur. Containers put to one side will often surprise long after they were discarded.
