How to Draw a Yucca Plant

Yucca plants are one of the most popular houseplants to grow indoors. This article will show you how to draw a yucca plant with a pencil, pen, and paper. The first step is to outline the shape of the yucca plant on your sheet of paper using an oval or circle shape.

Next, draw two lines from either side of this shape (these should be straight lines).

Now, begin drawing in foliage by drawing lots of small pointed leaves. Lastly, color in your newly drawn yucca plant with pencils or pens! They are straightforward to look after and make excellent houseplants due to their low maintenance requirements.

Yuccas come in a variety of shapes, sizes, colors, and textures. Read on for helpful tips on how to care for yucca plants at home!

How to Draw a Yucca Plant

Supplies to Gather While Learning How to Draw a Yucca Plant:

  • Pencil
  • Paper
  • Eraser
  • Rulers and compasses
  • Colored pencils, watercolors, etc.
  • A computer printer

Steps to Follow: How to Draw a Yucca Plant 

Step 1:

When learning how to draw a yucca plant, the first thing one should do is gather supplies and set the scene. Next, one should pick a pencil, eraser, and paper. Then one should draw a thin curved line to represent the large stem of the yucca plant.

Step 2:

The next thing to do is to add in the thicker parts of the stem. Add first the large lines that are parallel to each other. Then add on top of those lines, perpendicularly running ones. Where these new lines intersect with the parallel stem lines is where another line should be drawn for the leaves near the bottom of the plant.

Step 3:

To create a leaf, begin by drawing a curved line sitting on the perpendicularly running stem line parallel to the more prominent lines. Then, from that line, another perpendicular line should be drawn out to create a point.

Step 4:

To make two leaves, start by drawing one leaf on the stem. Then draw a parallel line to the bottom of the stem, touching it on either end. Where those lines intersect with the existing leaves is where new leaves should be drawn.

Step 5:

To make the rest of the yucca plant, one should draw a line across all stem lines and perpendicular to create points for each leaf. Then add on top of those lines circles for where the leaves attach at the stems.

Step 6:

The next thing to do is to erase any extra lines and add in the yucca flower. First, one should draw a large circle on top of where two leaves intersect at their stems. Then, one must place petals inside of the process to determine where the actual flower bud is.

Step 7:

Erase any extra lines that are unnecessary for the flower and the leaves. Then draw a small circle for the flower bud inside of where there are no leaves. Next, draw in smaller circles to indicate the individual petals inside of those larger circles.

The last thing to do is color in your yucca plant! It may be easier to see what you’re doing if you color over each part as you go.

Some Tips and Suggestions:

Some tips and suggestions to draw a yucca plant

1. Start by drawing an oval. Then make a pretty big stem going out of one end. For the rest of the stem, draw three smaller lines from each side and connect them to the leaves at the top.

2. Draw an extensive, thick line underneath the middle of the oval and off to one side. Then, add another line coming from it up to the top of the stem on that side.

3. Draw another shape next to the first one but beneath where we started with the oval. This shape will be like a wedge or triangle shape near the bottom, and then it will widen as it gets higher.

4. On the right side of the first shape, draw a curved line that goes around and attaches to the first shape we made on that side. Then you can draw the leaves and voila!

5. Now, all you have to do is erase some lines and make sure that everything is proportional and you are finished!

Things to Consider Before Drawing a Yucca Plant:

Things to Consider Before Drawing a Yucca Plant

1. A yucca plant has sword-like leaves, which are arranged at the top of the stem.

2. The stem of a yucca plant is woody and spiny.

3. The leaves, flowers, and fruit of the yucca are white or cream-colored.

4. The fruit of the yucca is a brown leathery capsule, which opens up to reveal shiny black seeds.

5. The white or cream-colored flowers of the yucca are bell-shaped and arranged in clusters at the top of the stem. They have five petals and grow either singly or in groups of three.

6. Yucca plants grow in dry and rocky areas.

7. Draw the leaves of the yucca growing upwards towards the top of your paper – each leaf attached to a long stem.

8. Pay attention to how many leaves your yucca has and where you decide to place them on your paper. You can draw more than one stem, but only one will be visible at a time.

How Many Flowers Does a Yucca Plant Have?

Yucca plants have a few, but the fact of the matter is they don’t have many flowers at all. Sometimes you can find a yucca plant with twenty or more flowers, but that’s about as good as it gets. In most cases, the number of flowers on a single yucca plant will range from one to five.

Do Yucca Plants Have Seeds?

Yes, a yucca plant can have seeds and fruit, but this doesn’t happen very often. Sometimes the yucca plant will produce seed pods after its flowers have withered, fallen off, or been pollinated by another flower on the same plant. This is a rare occurrence, though, and the seed pods produced by the yucca plant are even more occasional.


Yuccas are beautiful plants that can be grown in many different climates. The key to developing a healthy yucca is giving them the right amount of light, water, and space. Drawing a Yucca Plant is rewarding and straightforward.
