Yucca dismetiana ‘Blue Boy’
at Digging Dog

Yucca

Yuccas can be found over much of North America, and the architectural assertiveness of their strong, swordlike blades is prized by gardeners. Each year, stout leafless stems bear large clusters of waxy, alabaster-colored floral pendants. Needing little or no maintenance and thriving best in well drained soil, these toughs will not complain where summers are hot or humid, or long and dry. Zone 5/6

Yucca dismetiana ‘Blue Boy’ full sun

Dressed in gray icy greens and powder blues with a dusky purple overlay, this handsome pastel-hued treasure exhibits a tough disposition. Rigid evergreen leaves with sharp pointed tips and fine-toothed margins craft a rounded barrel-like rosette that develops slowly, its amethyst coloration intensifying as the weather heats up. Waxy white pendulous flowers draped on stout panicles deliver late summer sparkle.

Unfazed by mettlesome deer, drought, moisture and humidity, ‘Blue Boy’ can harmonize with Melianthus ‘Antonow’s Blue’ and Festuca ‘Superba’.

Formerly listed as Yucca aloifolia ‘purpurea’.

Blooms July – August.

Size: 4'–6' high x 3' wide. Zone 7/8.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
