Product Information

Yucca aloifolia is a highly ornamental evergreen shrub with a distinctly tropical appearance.

'Purpurea' brings exotic architectural splendour to your garden, with striking green leaves with a dusky purple blush that intensifies in full sun, giving an almost rainbow effect of colour

Absolutely striking, the rosette of spiky, sword-shaped leaves, can produce 45cm (18in) spikes of fragrant waxy-white bell-flowers in hot, dry summers, which increase in fragrance towards the evening, filling your garden with perfume.

Despite its desert-like origins, this yucca is fully hardy down to -10C when grown in sandy soil and is more than happy in relatively dry or moderately watered UK gardens, where it can be kept as a single stem plant or encouraged to branch by removing the top from the main stem.

Very hardy, and tolerant of drought too, this stunning purple yucca makes a bold and dramatic statement in the garden, especially if you grow a pair in pots either side of doorways and entrances.

Supplied as an established plant, 40-50cm tall in a 2L pot the robust plants will reach 90-120cm (36-48in)

Top Tips

Alternative names such as aloe yucca, dagger plant, and Spanish bayonet give you a good idea of how the leaves look - they're tipped with a spine so treat with care when planting and try to avoid areas where pets and children pass.

Care Information

  • Plant in any reasonably soil as long as it is well-drained - a sandy loam is ideal. Add horticultural grit or sand to the planting hole to open up heavy soils.
  • Plants prefer full sun, but will also tolerate light shade.
  • Don't worry about feeding as plants do best on poor sandy soil, becoming hardier too.
  • Established plants are very drought resistant.
  • Remove old, yellow and bent leaves to maintain its form - simply pull them off or cut them with a sharp pair of secateurs.
  • large white flower spikes form in late summer and these should be removed as soon as the flowers fade.
  • After flowering the leading stem stops growing and will die back, however, the crown will usually produce a number of side shoots to take over before this occurs.
