Yucca rostrata, commonly known as the beaked yucca or Big Bend yucca, is an iconic plant native to the Chihuahuan Desert of northern Mexico and the southwestern United States. Its striking appearance and resilience have made it a favourite among gardeners and landscapers worldwide.

This architectural plant belongs to the Asparagaceae family and is characterized by its dramatic, symmetrical rosette of stiff, sword-like leaves. The leaves, which can reach lengths of up to three feet, are a striking blue-green colour and have a unique twist that adds to their visual appeal. The name "rostrata" refers to the beak-like shape of the pointed tips of the leaves.

Yucca rostrata is highly adaptable and can thrive in a range of conditions, including poor soil, drought, and high temperatures. It prefers well-drained soil and plenty of sunlight, making it ideal for xeriscaping and desert gardens. In its natural habitat, it often grows on rocky slopes and ridges, where it adds a sculptural element to the landscape. It is low-maintenance in nature, making it a popular choice for both experienced gardeners and beginners alike.

In spring and early summer, Yucca rostrata produces a spectacular display of creamy white flowers held on tall, branching stalks. These flowers are bell-shaped and fragrant, attracting pollinators such as moths and butterflies. After flowering, the plant may produce small, fleshy fruit containing numerous seeds.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.
