Yucca elephantipes is a specimen plant used for the architectural value of its leaf clusters, sprouting from upright or branched trunks of varying height. It is suitable for bright sunny indoor areas. Indoor Yucca plants are produced by lopping off stem sections from mature specimens. Once rooted, clusters of long, leathery leaves sprout from buds hidden in these truncated stems. In time, these form long branches, which give the plant a great deal of character. Yucca leaves are usually deep green with rough edges although variegated types are also available. Yucca’s occasionally flower, producing clusters of creamy-white bell shaped flowers. In their native countries, Yucca’s have been used as a source of medicine, food, fibre and even as a soap-like substance that is made from the crushed roots.
