Yucca Elephantipes... Silver Star

In October, 2009, my garden or rather what used to be my garden was a mass of rubble due to the renovation of my house. All my plants, except for a couple of palm clumps and a few pots of foliage, had been destroyed. I still remember going to a nursery to buy some plants for starting my garden and picking up three Yuccas which looked so striking. The Yucca Elephantipes are beautiful landscape plants which are extremely hardy. I planted them on the edge of my lawn which gets a good deal of sun and other than that they have pretty much looked after themselves.

A couple of years later...
