Useful as architectural plants with their striking leaves and beautiful colours, yuccas and agaves hail from desert regions of the Americas. Many are very tough, surviving very low night temperatures in their native habitat. Some remain small, but some, such as the Yucca rostrata
can attain several metres in height! Their stunning architecture is very evocative and varies from the spikey Agave
to the soft, unusual grass-like plumes of the Dasylirion
. Browse this page for a variety of plants to provide stunning focal points for your garden!
