Yucca 'Silver Anniversary' PP31,437 - A vigorous Yucca cultivar to 2 to 3 feet tall by 4 feet wide with multiple compact rosettes of 3/4 inch wide powder-blue colored leaves and producing a 7 foot tall reddish inflorescence stalk of pendant bell-shaped cream-white flowers in mid spring. Plant in full sun in a well drained soil and irrigate infrequently to occasionally. It is hardy to around 0 F and useful in gardens in USDA Zone 5b and above. This is a Tony Advent introduction in 2018 that was the result of crossing the two North American species, the Adam's needle, Yucca filamentosa and the Pale-leaf Yucca, Yucca pallida. This resulting seedling from the Yucca breeding program conducted by Tony at his Plant Delights Nursery in Raleigh, N.C. that began in 2013, twenty-five years after the nursery was founded in 1988. With this timing in mind and this plants silver-gray foliage, 'Silver Anniversary' is a very fitting name! Of its parents, this plant looks more similar to Yucca pallida but seems to have gained vigor from the Yucca filamentosa parent. We first trialed this plant for PlantHaven in 2019 and pictures of it on this website were provided by them.  This information about Yucca 'Silver Anniversary' PP31,437 displayed is based on research conducted in our library and from reliable online resources. We will also note observations that we have made about it as it grows in the gardens in our nursery and those elsewhere, as well how the crops have performed in containers in our nursery field. We will also incorporate comments we receive from others, and we welcome hearing from anyone with additional information, particularly if they can share cultural information that would aid others in growing it.
