Yucca Gautemalensis 'Silver Star' is an evergreen shrub. It can grow up to 9 m in height, with a spread to 4.5 m, it is usually less than 6 m in height. It may have a thick, single trunk or be multi trunked resulting from a thickened, inflated, trunk-like lower base similar to an elephant's foot. The leaves are strap-like, spineless and up to 1.2 m in length. White flowers are produced in the summer, followed by brown, fleshy fruits which are oval and up to 2.5 cm long.
The plant is widely cultivated in warm temperate and subtropical climates. It has average water requirements, and little maintenance is needed other than the removal of dead leaves when the shrub nears its ultimate height.
The species can be grown in a variety of soils and is drought-tolerant. The plant is very hardy, and can handle occasional snow and freezing temperatures
Flower borders and beds, houseplant, often used to prevent soil erosion on steep slopes
For watering cacti, the golden rule is to make sure the soil is completely dry before watering! This will stop the roots from rotting. It is advised to always use a pot with a drainage hole so that excess water can get drained out. If kept in a sunny area, you will need to water it once every week. If it is in a semi shaded or filtered light area, you might need to water it once in 2 weeks.
Cacti like soil that is well aerated and fast draining. You can fertilise the cactus in the summer months when it is in its growing season. During the winters it is best to cut back on any fertiliser and let the plant rest.
