Yucca Sapphire Skies is a new evergreen perennial introduction. The powder blue leaves of the Yucca rostrata Sapphire Skies hold their color year-round. The Yucca Sapphire Skies is a rare plant that matures at approximately 16 by 16 inches with a 36 inch tall bloom stalk. Over the years, the Sapphire Skies Yucca forms a tree with a stout trun to approximately 4 feet tall. They resemble a shaggy looking palm tree.
Plant the Sapphire Skies in full sun. As with rostratas, tree forming yuccas, they require dry winters and will need wind protection in cold climates.
Planting Yucca plants:
Dig a hole about 3 times as wide as the root plug and 2 times the depth. Fill hole with water. Water should quickly drain out within about an hour, otherwise the area is too wet for this yucca plant. Plant so that the top of the root system is about an inch higher than the soil level. Allow this top part of the root system to dry out before watering again.
When watering, apply approximately 1 inch of water or water the top 1/3 of the soil when dry. Water weekly during spring, summer and fall. Plant in well drained to dry soil areas. During winter, water monthly if no rainfall.
Great for planting in containers with drainage holes.
