Yucca filifera grows as a statuesque, sparsely-branched tree in its native central Mexico, where it is seen by the million along roadsides. As a garden specimen in the UK it has shown only moderate frost tolerance, usually damaged or killed below -8C unless kept bone dry - difficult because of its eventual height. Away from milder gardens it is worth growing in the conservatory or greenhouse because of its densely-leafed, almost bottle-brush array of spiky-tipped stiff leaves that are equipped with attractively peeling threads along the margins. Plants outgrowing their space can be chopped - new branches will form along the sides of the trunk!
