Yucca, also known as the palm lily, is an iconic plant with a rough appearance that symbolizes the deserts and prairies well. This versatile plant, suited for indoors and outdoors, has ornamental, pointy leaves that make any area look nicer. At MyPalmShop, you can find a large range of Yucca plants to spruce up your interior or garden.
Yucca is known as palm lilies due to their large, white flower bundles in Spring. They are evergreen and can reach impressive heights, with species that reach a trunk height of 4 metres tall and leaves of about 50 cm tall. Each species has its own characteristics and requires specific care.
Palm lilies are easily cared for due to their ability to store water in their trunk. They do not require a lot of water – they can go without water for 6 weeks during winter! In Summer, they can use additional water, especially on warm days. Spraying is not necessary – they tolerate dry air extremely well. Ensure they receive at least 5 hours of sunlight to keep their leaves in good condition. Some Yucca species can be used indoors, whereas others are hardy, and can survive outside as well.
These plants generally require little pruning, but some maintenance may be needed occasionally. We recommend removing dead or wilting leaves regularly. Consider topping the plant if it grows too large, though, know that the recovery will take time. Prune the flower stalks after flowing in late summer or early fall. Ensure the base of the plant is free of debris and weeds. Don’t forget that the specific needs of Yucca varieties can vary, so adjust the care based on the type of yucca.
