Yucca elephantipes, or Spineless Yucca, is hardy outdoors in zones 9-11, which includes your gardening zone. It can grow outdoors in full sun or partial shade in any well-drained soil. The two to three-foot-tall bloom is produced on top of the stalks once the plant is 8 to 10 feet tall. Blooms are edible and high in calcium and potassium and can be used in salads and leaves contain large amounts of ascorbic acid, if you're considering feasting on your plant. Otherwise, it makes a nice addition to the landscape.
