A vigorous selection with elegant powder blue leaves which hold their color year-round. Over the years it will form an upright, unbranched tree with a stout trunk to about 4'. The hardiest of the trunk forming Yuccas. Another rare and exciting plant find brought to us from our friends at Cistus Nursery.
