Though hardly new, this next plant is at least new to Paul's landscape. Adam's needle, or yucca, is commonly associated with desert gardens because of their hardiness. This one does well all the way north to USDA Zone 4, and it's evergreen everywhere. Its sword-like foliage adds architectural interest to the landscape. Adam's needle grows about 4 feet tall and wide and will be capped by dozens of white blooms.
