It's hot and dry out there so let's focus on those plants that can take the heat! Read ahead to see what we have available. 

Yucca Rostratas

The Yucca Rostrata, also called a Beaked Yucca or Big Bend Yucca, grows up to 15' tall. It has silver/blue foliage. The tip of the plant  is sharp but the leaves are flexible and not dangerous if you walk past this plant or happen to run in to it. It's extermely cold-hardy and does great in our area with very well drained soil.
