Yuccas are attractive, low-maintenance shrubs for dry, well drained soils. Their stiff foliage adds an unusual texture to the landscape, and their flowers appear in large, showy panicles. Several Yucca species are popular in cultivation, including some that can grow in an extraordinary wide range of climates.
