yucca recurvifolia 'banana split'

Post by bev » Sun Apr 03, 2011 10:45 pm

i don't normally go for veriegated plants that much, but i had to get this
yucca-recurvifolia-'banana-.jpg
yucc-rec-2.jpg
a steal at the size for £6.99, 10.99 in a gc up the road, which i still thought was cheap and the strong yellow against the green looks nice to my eyes. it is also very lax and hopefully won't become too vicious.
i've never seen this variety before, does anyone have any experience with it?

cheers
come on you spurs

I have not seen this but it looks good. The main question will be.... has the variegation reduced it's hardiness, like in Agave americana :?:
Best regards

Groves are not uncommon in many Yucca species.
