Jay, any specific clues on protecting your yucca plants? They look nice and healthy!

Thanks Guys, I don't protect them Igor. I have only placed a Styrofoam cover with some breathing holes
over the rostratas and baccatas for the first winter when they were small.

Cry me a river. :laughing2:

No wonder you've been holding out with updates.
Great specimens.
They are soooo nice, Jay.

I can lend you my shop vac to get the leaves out of the rostrata. :booty: :lol:

You need some palms.

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.

I might have some palm seedlings for you if you're up to driving 40 miles north.

So there...no excuse. :lol:

Thanks Tim. I can't even remember what the seeds were labeled as. I thought they were
just rostratas. Thanks for the offer on the seeds. i'll let you know.

Hi Jay,

that 'rostrata' Yucca sure seems to have 'U' shaped leaves (cross section of leaf)........not a pure rostrata trait. Perhaps it is the Y. rostrata-rigida form since rigida has 'U' shaped leaves. How cold do you get?

Jay is that seed I may have sent you? Looks like some of the crazy rostrata seed I have. Eveything from that batch is not the norm. PS I can't tell the rostrata from the thompsoniana seed I ordered that year. :|

I don't how pure, But that year I bought Rostrata, thompsoniana, and rigida. It could be a rigida hybrid or rigida? If it is that would be a winner! :shock:
All my rostrata come from the same place and they all look different. :lol:

If any Y. rigida form survives -20C I would be floored. :shock: ...............PS, I would want an offshoot too! :D
