The spineless Yucca Plant, a native of Guatemala and southeast Mexico, is an ideal easy care houseplant. Yucca Plants can be a bush or a stalk plant. The long, leathery, pointed leaves of a Yucca Plant are a foot or more in length and about an inch wide. Yucca Plants are very top heavy plants and should always be set into a heavy clay or ceramic pot to prevent them from toppling over. A Yucca is a plant that complements a Southwestern look in your home or office.
