I have had a few of these over the years and they grow pretty reliably, though not as strongly or neatly as Yucca rostrata, which some forms of this look very much like (with much narrower leaflets, though). It is indeed a suckering plant, but a relatively ornamental one. Leaves vary from super thin, alsmot grass-like and green to blue-green and flat, but narrower than Y rostrata. Have moved one several times and took the move pretty well each time, though with a surprisingly small root ball (I think the roots die each time you dig it up, but new ones replace them). Not sure on its hardiness, but testing it in Acton, California at 3000' this year (2013 and will let you know if it survives the snow.

Have not had this plant long enough to know if it has any bad habits . So far it likes to send out pups from the base . Thats about all I know about it . It does look great in my beds though . It provides a great contrast to broad leaf perennials .
