Yucca filamentosa ‘Golden Sword’

Adam's needle (Yucca filamentosa ‘Golden Sword’) YUK-ah fil-ah-men-TOE-sah Genus:  Yucca This easy to grow evergreen yucca bears dramatic, sword-shaped yellow leaves with a dark green edge. Not as staunchly upright as some yuccas, its leaf tips sometimes droop with age. Its foliage color is best from fall to spring. Plants grow to nearly 2 feet in height and 3 feet in width. In summer, it produces a 6-foot-tall spike covered with nodding, fragrant, white bell-shaped flowers. Noteworthy Characteristics:  Yuccas are native to dry places in North and Central America. They are grown mainly for their architectural foliage and bold flower spikes. Care:  Provide well-drained soil in full sun. Propagation:  Sow seed in spring at 55-64°F. (Flowers may require hand-pollination to set seed.) Remove rooted suckers in spring or take root cuttings in winter. Problems:  Cane borers, scale insects, fungal leaf spots.
