Yucca seeds

Seattle, WA


I have Yuccas on my property and note they have been flowering and growing seed pods for the last month. Being newly retired to northern New Mexico, I want to spread them out on my property, especially along the road leading to the house. I also want to share these seeds with friends of mine back in Seattle, who are members of the Cactus Society there..

So, I am asking for specific directions not only in collecting, but preserving and starting plants from seed for the Yucca Glauca, the bayonet Yucca . I have been told this is simple. There is a right and wrong to simple; and I want to collect, preserve and propogate these plants correctly!


Green Cove Springs, FL(Zone 9a)

collect the seeds when the pods begin to drop. I've read that yuccas can take up to 1 year to germinate from seed (!)

There is a very detailed and well documented growing from seed guide here:

keep us posted on how this goes for you... I'm interested in trying some of the natives here in Florida
