Concerning Yuccas

Tonasket, WA

I live a few in north central Washington just a few miles south of the Canadian border. I have some Yucca plants and they do nicely here. Our climate is very hot for part of the summer and very cold for part of the winter. A huge plus is that th deer don't seem to like them. I would be interested in learning about some deer resistant plants that can withstand some temperature extremes. This is a lovely stress free site.

Howdy! I misplaced an article on how to get fibers from hardy yucca to spin. Is there anything like that here? Thanks! Carol =^.^=__?
