Yucca - Wholesale Nurseries
For landscapers looking for plants with strong architectural elements Yucca are one species to consider. The popular Yucca filamentosa and Yucca rostrata are just two of the many varieties offered by wholesale nurseries in the UK.
Although they are increasingly popular, it is essential to look for the right varieties for your location and climate.
Yuccas are suited to a range of landscaping applications including dry coastal areas.
Yucca gloriosa variegata with its spiky foliage makes a great plant for the garden or container. Some species will need protection from the cold of the UK winter, others will need to be grown indoors except in the warmest regions.
