Yucca pallida (Pale-Leaf Yucca)
Pale-Leaf Yucca is native to north-central Texas. This low growing yucca makes an excellent ground cover. It sports sage-green or bluish-green leaves. It may be single or have multiple offsets. It needs good drainage, and will develop root and crown rot if over-watered.
Pale-Leaf Yucca can tolerate some shade, and add interesting textural interest there, but will most likely not bloom as well or at all in shade.
