Yucca Cane Plant Features
An old-fashioned houseplant that's just as common now as it was a generation ago, yucca cane is wonderfully easy to grow and an excellent choice if you're just starting out with houseplants. It shows off clusters of rich green sword-like leaves on thick, woody trunks. The upright habit and spiky texture make it a fantastic complement to other traditional houseplants such as dieffenbachia and palms.
Over time, yucca cane develops into a bold tree that can reach several feet tall, making it a dramatic houseplant to add life and color to a blank wall, empty corners of a room, or act as a bold architectural accent.
Note: You may also see this plant called Yucca guatemalensis or Yucca elephantipes.
