Thanks for your kind words Comfrey. I have cut this back every year and it still gets out of hand . This year I am going to leave it alone see how it does. Looking for some good Spanish Daggers to go out front. Found some but they look stunted.

Hey Jimmy! [wavey] It's really great to see you!

Your Yucca looks fantabulous! Judging from your windows that I see in the pics, that's some dang tall yucca you got there! [clappy] It looks pretty happy to me, & I'd like to see what it looks like when it really gets "out of hand"... can't wait for next year's pics! (Does that stuff die back in the winter there, or just keep going?)

Be well, my friend... I miss you! [kissies]

Hi Patty thanks for your kind words. This stuff just keeps on keeping on of course we have very few really cold days but this has been threw a couple of weeks of hard freeze in 2000 and 2001. I was down due to verizon phone lines always out or having such a loud buzz would not let you connect. Now have high speed cable and was cheaper then the dialuip was. [Mad]

Cheaper than dial-up! [shocked] NOW I'm jealous, Jimmy! I'm on the end of a dead-end road here... (always figured I'd end up somewhere like this!) [grin] If we want that kind of service, we'll have to pay for the line installation! I'm not about to put in an order for that line to come to my house & have everyone else on the road tap into it on my nickel!  -

Hey! Them aint just "kind words" fella... I meant it when I said I've missed you.  - I'm really glad you're back & hope to see lots more of you now! I'm wondering how your job is going but I don't want to hijack your topic, so I'll PM you when I get back from church & let the folks get back to looking at that awesome Yucca plant! [kissies]

Mine bloomed for the first time this year, and it's about 12 years old! To be fair to it, it's had its problems - something kept eating it until we fenced the backyard, the dogs dug it up a few times... But this year it made up for everything, gorgeous, just like yours, and self fertile. I've got a lot of seed. I think I'll wait until spring to try planting, we're zone 4/5 here!

that has several of them...
They stay green right underneath the snow..
They slump a bit, but come back full force
and then some for him...

Very [flower] nice [flower] blooms [flower] you got there Jimmy!!

I've never stopped to smell his flowers,
do the flowers have a scent?????? [flower]

hellow,
i have a bunch of yaccas, they get out of hand , then i got my yaccas and peonies fighting for ground! after the yaccas flowers die off the main crown dies and side shoots grow, you can remove new side shoots in spring or fall and plant them somewere else. thats what i do to keep peace between the yaccas and peonies.

sibyl my grandmother wouod trim the longer or lower leaves off yucca and weave mats to sit on and place mats also baskets for gathering her eggs or picking flowers. You can make a lot of things with the leaves also can make soap out of thr root I dont know how. But my mother and grandmother and all my aunts made yucca root soap. Got you real clean and washed clothes with it too kinda like with lie soap.
