Yucca Rostrata Blue Swan is a stunning variety of desert Yucca which forms nearly spherical heads and has numerous long bluish-green to bluish-grey leaves of 40 to 60 cm long. Although the tips of the foliage are pointed Yucca Rostrata Blue Swan does not have the stiffness of foliage like other Yuccas and is therefore quite harmless.
The Yucca is a fantastic architectural plant indoors or outdoors. The panicle is about 60 cm long, which consists of fleshy white flowers. The plant can withstand temperatures down to -15 degrees Celsius, when rooted properly. See also Yucca Gloriosa and Yucca Thompsoniana which are other varieties of hardy yucca plants we have in stock in many sizes.
Yucca Rostrata Blue Swan is regularly used in contemporary garden designs due to their clean architectural shape. These Yuccas are commonly known as Beaked Yucca, Silver Yucca or Big Bend after the region in Texas where it grows in abundance.
Yucca Rostrata Blue Swan is generally acknowledged to be one of the finest forms of yucca rostrata. It is a carefully selected form, chosen primarily for its steely blue-green colour and its highly architectural shape with its spherical crown and of course its suitability for growing outdoors in the UK, despite its exotic looks. We have this excellent variety of Yucca Rostrata now available in large quantities, which is quite rare in Britain.
