Also known as Adam's needle and thread, this unusual architectural plant forms a low clump of evergreen sword-shaped leaves with curious, fine curly filaments along the the leaf edges. From late summer, a truly spectacular flower spike emerges, rocketing up to 2 metres in height! The large waxy, creamy coloured flowers nod elegantly and are long lasting. Native to coastal and hot dry parts of the South East USA, Yucca filamentosa copes brilliantly with drought and is superb for Mediterranean style gardens, coastal gardens, rock gardens, gravel gardens or for adding an exotic touch to well-drained borders. Height: 1m (3'). Spread: 1.5m (5').
