Yucca de-smetiana Baker
The plant is cultivated as an ornamental in many places because of its colored foliage. Leaves are bluish-gray when young, turning burgundy as they mature. It requires little maintenance, with low water requirements. It is suitable as a garden border in sandy soil and also as a potted plant for patio or walkway.
