Product Description

Also known as the beaked yucca, Yucca Rostrata 'Sapphire Skies' is a plant of architectural impact with a tall, sturdy trunk topped by a pompom-crown of spiky, steel-blue leaves.

A superb plant for well-drained, sunny areas of the garden, the globe of long, spiky leaves looks much like an exploding firework and will bring a dazzling effect wherever it is planted. The leaves themselves are long and pointed and being fairly thin catch the breeze and move seductively.

A definite plant for collectors and lovers of the unusual, this is a plant that is rarely offered for sale and one that we're really excited to bring to you and with its head of creamy white flowers in summer once mature, it's a real eye catcher!

Hardy to -10C, this is an easy to grow specimen and supplied as an established young plant in a 9cm pot, ready for potting up or planting out.

  • Dig a hole a little deeper and 3 x wider than the nursery pot.
  • Add a soil conditioner such as well-rotted manure to the earth removed from the hole if necessary.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Place your plant in the hole at the same level at the pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).

  • Water well and mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.
