Also known as Adams needle, Yucca filamentosa is a multi-suckering palm with a tall flower stem.

Though all Yuccas appreciate a good amount of sun and well drained soil, they are fairly low maintenance and as such need fairly little watering. The plant is prone to potential pests and diseases. No maintenance is required. Final height is between 50 cm – 1 m (1.6 ft – 3.2 ft) and final width is between Final Sideways Spread: 1 m – 1.5 m (3.2 ft – 4.9 ft)
