Yucca Rostrata Pinnacle Seeds

Most landscape gardeners are familiar with Yucca varieties as they are relatively fast growing, hardy evergreen plants, with a distinct architectural style, making them a popular choice. Whilst there are many popular species of Yucca, Yucca Rostrata is one of the most loved species, due to its very refined appearance, ornate trunk, not to mention sensationally elegant silvery foliage. Because only very old plants of this variety produce flowers, the seeds of Yucca Rostrata are generally quite rare and highly sought after. The cultivar we have here, Yucca Rostrata Pinnacle was originally selected as a particularly elegant selection from Texas, that is highly suitable for landscaping as it sheds its old leaves exposing its beautiful ornate stems/trunks, upon which the narrow beautiful strappy silver leaves emerge. This relatively quick growing variety is used in gardens to provide some Spanish/Mexican/Exotic flair, contrast with existing garden shrubs and provide textures to soften harsh surrounds. This variety is also of architectural appeal as it does spectacularly well in pots beside/inside buildings, in foyer areas or out in the open near a pool or perhaps a Tuscan courtyard. The first 2-3 years of growth, the plant grows in single fully-leafed stems, before it typically adopts a distinct multi-trunked shape (particularly if it is in the garden and receiving light from all directions) before commencing flowering when it reaches 3-5 years of age.
