Beschorneria yuccoides variegata

Common Name: Mexican Amole Lily

The Beschorneria yuccoides variegata, commonly known as the Mexican Amole Lily, is between “Agave-like”, and “Yucca-Like”, this beautiful lily grows quite large- to 3’ high and wide.  Leaves are green with bright yellow striping, completely soft (no thorns) and thrives in regular gardening water conditions to- “on the dry side.”  Then comes the surprise!  At about year 2 or 3 of maturity, an amazing flower stem rockets out to 6 or more feet in height, a spray of rich pink flowers! Unlike Agave, this does not kill the plant, but only encourages it to pup and repeat even more. Hardy to low teens; full sun to part shade.
