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 -10°C 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)
