We love this exotic looking houseplant - bring a totally tropical feeling to your home with this lovely plant!
With spiked green, sword-shaped leaves springing up from the palm-like trunk, this large houseplant makes a striking statement and has a very sculptural look. Native to Central and South America and Mexico, it’s truly a taste of the rainforest - it really looks as though it has just burst out of the undergrowth!
This large houseplant is a sun lover, so it needs somewhere where it can soak up the rays - a south-facing window would be ideal so it can lap up the light. It’s unusual among houseplants - a lot of them can’t take direct sun but this one really loves basking in direct light.
Yukka Elphatipes gets its name from its trunk - which, over time, thickens to resemble an elephant’s foot! We like this striking houseplant in a basket for a stylish magazine kind of look.
Most people know the Yukka plant - but what really makes it outstanding is the way you style it - think carefully about your planter or you can even use a basket. We do a great selection of seagrass planters that can add that special touch to your plant.
What a wonderful gift this would make! We’ll add in a free, handwritten card if you tell us your gift message - just leave a note of it at the basket stage of the checkout and we’ll arrange the rest.
No giveaway paperwork either!
