Fragrant Perennials
Yucca flaccida.         $2.00
There doesn’t seem to be a common name for this Adam’s Needle, but it is most similar to Y. filamentosa. It differs mainly in that the leaves droop at the tips, i.e. flaccid–even the inflorescence sometimes droops. As with most yuccas, the flowers are most fragrant at night when they are pollinated by the moth Pronuba yuccasella. Yuccas were great favorites of Gertrude Jekyll, who combined them with Euphorbia, Acanthus and Kniphofia.
