The Adam's Needle, 'Yucca filamentosa 'Bright Edge', is a clump forming perennial with tufts of dark-green leaves edged in golden yellow. In the summer time, the foliage is even more golden.
The creamy, bell-shaped, white flowers hover over the foliage. The red coloration on the long blades highlights the flowering crown. It should be planted in full sun and in a well-drained area.
This Yucca is extremely hardy, drought-tolerant, and deer-resistant. It will create a spiky, textured statement in a garden bed or planted in containers; also a butterfly attractor.
If you have a problem area that is extremely sunny with dry soil, 'Bright Edge' is the perfect plant for that spot.
