Yucca filamentosa 'Bright Edge'


Plant Type:


Yucca filamentosa 'Bright Edge' - A very nice, mid-sized Yucca with foliage standing about 18 inches tall. All blue-green swords are broadly-edged in warm yellow which ages to cream. Branched flower spikes rise to about 60 inches carrying large open-faced five-petaled white flowers up to four inches in diameter. The flowering event is showy and eye catching. Each flower upon opening exhibits a soft granny smith apple green infusion in the flower center melding generally into the petal centers with the overall flower pure white. Flowers age to creamy ivory sometimes barely holding onto a green tint. Ours, a permanent fixture in our rock / cacti garden, has slowly increased its numbers in a tightly clumping fashion over the course of many years and has never demanded much space. This version of Y. filamentosa sports fewer filaments than the species, is infinitely more demure, slower to size up and is charming. Nice as a small specimen, accent in the full sun herbaceous garden, terrific in a sunny rock garden, a fantastic companion to Opuntia and Daphne alike... seemingly endless uses as long as it is placed in full sun exposure planted in well-drained conditions. A little lime in the planting hole would be appreciated. Established Yucca, pot-grown from division.
