Pale-yucca! The ghostly, silver-blue leaves twist and turn creating a dramatic play of light and shadow. These trunk-less yuccas can be easily incorporated into any garden space because of their diminutive size. Being native to the Texas Hill Country they grow in heavy, alkaline soils and tolerate extreme cold. Customers from North Carolina to coastal Maryland report success with this dwarf yucca. Leaves average 2 in. wide by 18 in. long. These plants represent the hybrid intergrade population between Yucca pallida and Yucca rupicola. Leaf color varies from plant to plant.

Notes and observations about this plant
- Rural SE Michigan
- This easily survived -20°F/-30°C two years in a row with no damage, in a fully unprotected location (with good snow cover) in rural SE Michigan. Definitely tolerates the ground freezing solid with no snow, even as a small plant. (Posted on 1/26/2016 by Michigander).
- cold hardy yucca
- this yucca has survived here in metro Detroit !! truly hardy species (Posted on 3/31/2010 by vince).
- This collection originated from seed collected near Brownwood, Texas which is mid-range between true Yucca pallida to the north and Y. rupicola to the south. Thus these inter-grades have the silver leaves of pale-yucca but with the twist of the Y. rupicola (Posted on 2/23/2010 by Yucca Do Staff).
