Geoff - Great informative article. Never did I ever imagine that there were so many kinds of Yucca plants.
Hoping you can help me with a dilemma. I have lived in zone 5a for my entire life. South Eastern Ontario, actually. My DMIL has Yucca on her property that has seed pods and produces beautiful whitish flowers. I love the firm structure of the leaves. She gave me some seed pods and I planted them. This is the second year for them and they are nowhere near looking like a Yucca plant. More like blades of grass that are a wee bit thicker this year.
1. Do you have any idea what the name of this Yucca plant could be?
2. If so, do you have any idea how long it will take for the plant to mature into a flower producing Yucca plant?
Wish I knew what the name of this plant is - then I could find out more about it. There are several in the area and they are breath-taking beautiful when they are in flower.
Any help would be very much appreciated.
Thanks again for the very informative article. I always learn so much from you, as a Veterinarian and a very knowledgeable gardener.
Thanks palmbob. Guess I was being lazy and hoping you had the answer at your fingertips. Your diverse wisdom impresses me and has earned my utmost respect.
I will follow your advice and learn along the way. It is always interesting doing the research because I learn so much that adds to my goal of becoming more knowledgeable. DG has really helped with this process but the more I learn the more I realize how much there is to learn.
Thank you for your guidance and the informative article.
