  • Organic Adam's Needle (Yucca Filamentosa)

    A heavily clustering, stemless Yucca native to the Atlantic coast of the United States from Central Florida up to as far north as New Hampshire.

    Y. filamentosa is similar and often confused with Y. flaccida, with which it shares part of its native range. It can usually be told apart by its rather stiff, slightly spoon-shaped, bluish-green leaves, as opposed to the lax, drooping, dark green leaves of Y. flaccida. Y. filamentosa is extremely adaptable and cold hardy and will succeed in all temperate and most subtropical climates.
     

    How to Grow

    Yucca plants grow best in full sun and dry sites. While they are very tolerant of drought, sandy or compacted soil and salt spray, Adam’s needle yucca cannot tolerate wet or continually damp soils. The roots will rot in cool climates where they are exposed to extremely cold, wet springs. In the landscape, they are used as specimen plants, borders, ground covers or for a xeriscape or fire-proof garden.

    In spring, before flower stalks appear, apply a slow release general purpose outdoor fertilizer. Adam’s needle plants are available in variegated varieties. Variegated types may have streaks or striping of white, yellow or pink on their green foliage. After the plant blooms and fruits, the foliage dies back to the ground and can be carefully removed. New plants, then grow from the plant’s root. Adam’s needle yucca plants are slow growing, but they can densely naturalize in an area if left unchecked.
