The Dasylirion wheeleri Spoon Yucca is an evergreen perennial plant, known for its unique leaf shape and beautiful yellow blooms. This one-gallon size plant is a slow-growing, drought-tolerant species that is easy to care for. Its foliage makes an excellent addition to any garden or landscape, providing an exotic and modern look to any space.

This type of yucca is a long- lived plant with long, gray strap-shaped serrated leaves on a stout short trunk that can rise 4 to 6 feet and the spread can be about the same. The 3 foot long narrow leaves are blue-gray color with sharp serrated margins and a spoon shaped base that gives the plant one of its common name. These leaf bases remain on the trunk giving it a rough appearance.

Flowering occurs only every few years with tiny pale brownish greenish male or female flowers (this is a dioecious plant bearing flowers of one sex or the other) on stout spikes 10 to 15 feet tall from the center of the leaf rosette in early summer. After flowering the rosette branches at the base of the inflorescence to replace the flowering rosette and enabling the stem to continue to grow on. Plant in full sun. It is drought tolerant and hardy to 0 degrees F. Though flowering is not a regular occurrence the flowers are interesting and attract bees, butterflies and other insects to the garden.

Your plant will be shipped with the roots wrapped in damp paper towels and with plastic and ready to plant upon arrival. These have been growing 1 gallon containers.  The plants will be between 10 to 12 inches  in height with well-developed roots.
