Seed Packet #2070
Spanish Bayonet Yucca aloifolia
Spanish bayonet has an erect trunk, 3-5" in diameter, reaching up to 5-20' tall before it becomes top heavy and topples over. When that happens, the tip turns upward and keeps on growing. The trunk is armed with sharp pointed straplike leaves each about 2' long. The young leaves near the growing tip stand erect; older ones are reflexed downward, and the oldest wither and turn brown, hanging around the lower trunk like an Hawaiian skirt. Eventually the tip of the trunk develops a 2' long spike of white, purplish-tinged flowers, each blossom about 4" across. After flowering, the trunk stops growing, but one or more lateral buds are soon formed, and the uppermost becomes a new terminal shoot. Any other buds become branches, but these are usually few, and the plant has an open, airy habit. Spanish bayonet also produces new buds, or offshoots, near the base of the trunk, forming a thicket.

Adam's needle, bear grass, weak-leaf yucca Yucca filamentosa
Adam's needle looks a little like a small palm, but is actually more closely related to the lilies. The leaves of Adam's needle are strap-like, about an inch wide and up to 2 or 3' long. The leaves are basal; that is, they all originate from one point, taking the form of a rosette. The margins of the leaves are decorated with long curly threads or "filaments" that peel back as the leaf grows, eventually dropping off on older leaves. The inflorescence is very showy and borne on an erect spike up to 12' high. The individual flowers (up to several dozen) are white and about 2" long. The plant dies after flowering and fruiting, but produces lateral buds that start new plants around the edges of the original.
Light: prefers full sun, but will tolerate some light shade.
Moisture: average to dry soild - drought tolerant.
Hardiness: USDA Zones 6-10.
Use in mixed borders and natural areas. Excellent in rock gardens and as an accent among other perennials. Can be grown in outdoor container.
