Yucca elephantipes, also known as Yucca guatamalensis or the Spineless Yucca, is native to southeast Mexico and Guatamala. Although normally sold as a house plant, many intrepid gardeners have been growing it outside in recent years. It is an easy and very tough house plant but outside should only be attempted in the warmest of locations.
It is single stemmed when young becoming multi trunked with maturity, having long, fairly narrow lance-shaped, light to mid green leathery leaves, usually losing the lower leaves with age, showing the plants structure well.
Yucca elephantipes, if used indoors, should be grown no further than three to five feet from a window as they like lots of light. They work well as a conservatory plant.
