Description

Yucca angustissima, Narrow Leaf Yucca, is a handsome, low, usually trunkless or procumbent Yucca that is endemic to Arizona, Utah, New Mexico and Colorado. It can be solitary or form clumps and the long thin rather delicate foliage is green with white margins that become filiferous. It resembles Yucca harrimaniae but has a taller inflorescence and its fruit are constricted in the same way as Yucca constricta but usually not as deeply as Yucca constricta.

A tough Yucca that tolerates extremes of drought and severe frost it is rarely encountered in cultivation in the UK and shouldn't be confused with Yucca angustifolia which is a synonym for Yucca gloriosa var. recurvifolia.

Yucca angustissima is rarely available and we have only a very limited quantity of seed-raised plants.
