Here's to all the global warming pushers, may your winters be -30 below and four feet of snow in your driveway. Because I want you happy.

Aaron, I sure like the look of yuccas in pots, especially the gorgeous nanas.

Are those metal pipes? or clay/chimney flue sections?

Did you put any soil in them, or is it all gravel for a growing medium?

Thanks,
They are planted in normal soil, and are in old propane tanks that burned in the fire. All I did was cut the tops of and cut slits in the bottom with a cut-off saw/gas powered metal saw. :D

If you want to try some next year let me know? I will send some that way. They grow fast with a little water, of course I don't give mine much. :)

So pretty, what a shame they die after flowering.
That's enough incentive to cut the flower stalk off.

I don't think they all die after blooming, the one in the pic is still alive. It is the one in the middle sized container, the top died but re-sprouted from the sides of the crown. And I think the one in the small container has bloomed also, but has not done anything else. If they do die, they resprout from the roots for the most part. Also I would only recommend these in containers because when you move them from one place to another they keep popping up from the roots, even though I think I got all roots from the soil. :)

Thanks for the clarification, Aaron.
Apart from looking really good in containers, glad blooming isn't fatal.

So you're saying they're borderline invasive?
Doubt I'd mind :lol: :lol:
How cool would that be...except on the driveway, etc. :lol: :lol:

No, because they don't spread around, but they are hard to remove. They are like a magic trick, once removed they magically reappear. :lol:

So like some other yuccas, picking the right place the first time is important.

..sure are pretty!

I think you will like them! But beware the leaves are sharp. :wink:

Doubt our constabulary will allow 'em across the border Aaron.
Far too gorgeous a yucca to risk that.
I'd be soooooo mad.
the leaves are sharp
I have some nice callouses where fingertips have healed from my other deadly-spike one.

Barb,

I had 11 3 gal Agaves and a 2.5 foot Yucca Rostrata shipped across the boarder as long as there is no dirt there seems to be no problem.

Hi teebee,
I had heard that it works for Ontario's border crossings, even calling something "houseplant" seems to get them across.
Years ago, I ordered a bunch of stuff from the Plant Delights nursery in the Carolinas and had to get a phytosanitary certificate ($$$$), etc.
The nursery said it wouldn't work otherwise.
Apparently the BC border nazis are very very tough.

I wonder if we should do a "dry run" with some garden grass...I mean SOD, minus soil, ha ha. :wink:
That kind of grass anyway. :fart:

Just trying to save one of your nice seedlings, Aaron, from getting tossed into a garbage can.

Barb,

Want me to act as a broker for the shipment?

Thanks Aaron, hope it works.

Teebee, thanks but we'll try it without brokerage for now.
