Yucca torreyi grows in general with one trunk, occasionally it will from multiple trunks, they also branch out sometimes.
Because of its long leaves and less regular head of leaves which are upright or in various angles, it is not so popular.
The leaves are rigid and 80-140 cm long and 4-5 cm wide.
The inflorescence starts in a beautiful purple colour and the flowers later develop a completely creamy white.
Y. torreyi occurs in northeast Mexico and the states of Texas and New Mexico and is very cold hardy, down to -15°C.

1. Soak for 2-3 hours then stratify mixed with moist vermiculite/sand in air tight zip lock bags. Keep for 4-5 weeks in a fridge at +2-+4C.
2. After the stratification - sow seeds on the surface of a Well drained seed sowing mix at about 17°C.
3. Lightly cover the seeded area with mulch to reduce soil compaction in sun and rain. Water shallow seed lightly and frequently until they sprout. Cedrus seeds will usually germinate in 14-60 days, even under good conditions germination may be erratic. Normally will only germinate with light, GA-3 may promote germination - even in the dark.
4. Water deeper seeds slowly and deeply, but do not keep wet or they can rot. When seeds sprout, encourage deep roots by gradually reducing watering frequency and increasing the amount, to get it down deep around and below roots while letting soil surface dry between soakings
NOTE: Most seeds require warm (room temperature or higher) temperatures to germinate. When seedlings emerge, thin extras to allow full light around seedlings; some may be transplanted to larger pots or the garden. When transplanting, hold small plants by leaves to avoid damage to tender stems.
