Profile plant "Yucca faxoniana"

This yucca is bold!  The big green long leaves are striking and for a cold hardy yucca it is hard to ignore.  They are not as cold hardy as most of the other yuccas I grow, but if I can grow one to a mature size I will have a real show piece.   

I have covered this yucca most of it's life, and every year the tips have died back, it wont be long before it grows to big for a cover.  Only time will tell how hardy it is.

This year I bought one from HighCountryGardens, Zone 5? I hope so. 

 Seed grown and planted last year, and covered.
