Common names: Mexican Lily, Yucca-leaved beschorneria. This species is native to Mexico.

They are succulent plants with a rounded shape. They have soft, sword-shaped leaves (up to 50 cm in length) and bluish-gray in color. The spectacular floral scape reaches 2 meters in height and is red in color. They bloom in spring.

They are used in rockeries or in gardens of succulent plants combined with Agaves, Aloes and Cactus.

Beschorneria yuccoides needs full sun exposure and protected from the wind; they resist cold and light frosts if the soil is dry.

The soil can be a mixture of 1/3 sand and 2/3 garden substrate.

Water moderately, waiting for the soil to dry completely. In summer slightly increase the waterings.

They do not need pruning or fertilization.

Overwatering causes the roots to rot.

They propagate by seeds, stem cuttings or by division.
