Description

Yucca filifera is one of the largest and fast growing yuccas, it branches highly after about 3-4 m and can reach heights of 9 m with a trunk of 1.5 m wide. Y.filifera grows in northeastern Mexico. Y.filifera is stated to be cold resistant to around -8C but there are specimens around the UK that seem to have resisted much lower temperatures so it may be under rated if sited correctly. Kept dry and in a favourable sunny spot  they can certainly take a few degrees more.
