Did you know Yucca trees are also known as “Ghosts in the Graveyard” in some parts of the United States? They grow abundantly in rural cemeteries in hot and dry regions, and since the sword-shaped greenery grows white flowers, the blooms look like ghostly apparitions floating in the darkness. Despite their chilling effect in the nighttime, Yucca trees are very popular household plants. Many people opt for artificial yucca for its beauty and convenience, which is a wise idea. Forget worrying about adequate sunlight and water and just enjoy the desert ambiance of the exotic yucca.
If you’re bringing home an artificial yucca plant, consider how to make it pop using a number of creative potting options. An ordinary urn will not do your artificial yucca display justice. So read on for suggestions on decidedly more interesting modes of display!
-Give character to the classic terra cotta pot by filling it with colorful rocks at the base of your artificial yucca. Buy your colorful rocks from your local craft store, or paint your own to achieve your desired palette. Use acrylic paint for best results.
-Anchor two or three artificial yucca plants in curvaceous containers on indoor or outdoor steps. The shape of the planter will provide lovely contrast to the spikey yucca, and a staggered staircase display is always appealing.
-Create “green screens” using tall yucca plants rooted in oversized decorative planters. The size of the containers and the silk plants are large enough to create a border-effect, which lets you define indoor and outdoor spaces naturally.
-Use a clay chimney flue liner as a planter in lieu of a terra cotta pot.
They create a similar effect, but cost less and are available in masonry yards in an interesting variety of shapes and sizes.
-Arrange a cluster of yucca plants in brightly-colored pots to create a vibrant display on the terrace or in the living room. Play around with different sizes and shapes. If you can’t find the right colors, paint them yourself!
Moreover,The tribes in south western United States and Northern Mexico use Yucca plants for a host of purposes. The Western Apaches primarily use the fibers of the Yucca leaves to make dental floss and rope. They prepare gravy to be eaten with food by mixing ground juniper berries and the fruit of the yucca plant and preparing gravy. They prepare a fermented drink from yucca fruits and juniper berries and grinding them into a pulp and soaking the ingredients in water.
