Andy,

Not all Yuucas will have as much liquid at the end of the pistol. Sometimes there's just a little inside the pistol and some have none. You'll still get seed pods if you pollenate many flowers👍

Did you get any seed pods?

Loads of Rhodos Paul! I hope the SH x macabeanum is Hardy for you. Please let us know how they fair this winter. I have a few hybrids outside too most with Rex or macabeanum genes in them. Only time will tell Here's a species out for testing, R arboreum v cinnamon http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c...

Great update Paul!!

Are you finding the F2 filata's Hardy? How about the Y. thomp x big mama?

I'm curious how those Hardy Engelmaniis will fair when larger. It's nice to see them alive!

Great garden. Keep the updates coming

PS how are the Rhodos's?

Yuccas don't die after blooming except for Yucca whippeli but technically that's not a Yucca anymore

I'm not sure, can you see the 'liquid' at the end of the pistol? These are the flowers ready to be pollenated.

It's not a 'true' filamentosa but the habit, leaves and flowers are pointing that way. Seed could have been produced on a Y glauca but pollenated by a Y filamentosa; therefore, we are seeing mostly filamentosa genes.

It's a form of Y filamentosa. What type of seed were you told it was?

Try to pollenate the flowers so seed pods will develop. 8)

Hi Aaron Every pistol is different between species. I find glauca, stricta and Arkansana strange since there is no hole at the end of the pistol and you need to open the 'flaps' to get the pollen in. East coast yuccas are easy Some nights seem to produce better pollen than other nights. Not sure why...

Hi Igor Most Yuccas can self pollenate. That means seed pods can form on a yucca with no other Yuccas You can pollenate with any other Yucca. The pollen donor 'generally' passes the leaf traits. Some crosses are more prominent than others. Example: the pollen from filamentosa was used to pollenate c...

Hi Igor, did you attempt to pollinate the flowers? I didn't see any seed pods. I usually pollinate at sunset or sunrise. Pollen forms best at these times (also during night but it's dark!). Gently scrap pollen off the anthers. Store pollen on your hand (see photo). Place pollen in the pistol 'tube'....

Big Mama seedlings should be hardy to at least -20C.......likely even hardier to -25C. Excess winter moisture is the biggest problem.

nice job with the seeds. the seeds with the exposed roots are not growing into the soil. The root continues to grow but the root tip is not growing into the soil. Bury the root into the soil now and it should be fine.
