Yucca recurvifolia 'Margaritaville' is an upright evergreen shrub or tree with clumps of strong, lance shaped, yellow striped leaves. As the plant grows the leaves start to form a woody stem, with a cluster of leaves at the top and sometimes at intervals up the stem. Yuccas are of good architectural value in the garden. Tall heads of white flowers are sometimes borne above the foliage from mid to late summer.

Yuccas need full sun and well-drained soil.
