The Yucca desmetiana is amazing to add a tropical or Mediterranean aesthetic. The smooth leaves grow into a graceful arching leaf arrangement. New leaves on these plants are coloured blush and bright green before transitioning towards a burgundy hue as it matures. This plant, when mature, will support this display of leaves on a multi-trunk display.
