    Well that's what it said on the label :suspicious:

    I can't find a match for either plant, foliage seems far too soft for either and there are no sharp points on the leaf tips.

    Any ideas good people? :)

    I was thinking when I saw the headline, there is always someone who has got something none of us has got. I was mildly jealous. Then I saw the picture and I fell over laughing, nearly though! Interesting plant.

    Different varieties of spurge are used in my locality for landscaping professional buildings. There are some really pretty varieties and they survive on neglect. I’ve found them interesting. I have a few yuccas on my new property. Tried removing one that was doing bodily harm. Unfortunately the roots went on more than the determination of the one removing it. Yuccas are tough though and survived a decade of total neglect on a dry hillside planted in gravel. After I finish some other projects I will terminate that particular offending yucca. My helpers weren’t up to the task.:shrug:

    I used to have a Yucca that lived on an inch of windblown soil that had built up since World War 2 on top of the pill box I used in Dorset. It flowered every year :)

    I'm happy with it Pac, got quite a few plain euphorbias that Tetters told me to lob on the compost earlier in the year :whistling: :D

    @Jewell we also tried to remove a Yucca that was doing bodily harm, and at the time we were concerned a camping child or doddery old person (like me) might fall on it with fatal consequences. I enlisted the aid of an inexpensive gardener (Zigs) to dig the roots out. In spite of huge effort to remove all traces it is still popping through the soil whenever our backs are turned - so stubborn!!

    I mowed it several times in the past few years, even in the drought it was putting up shoots

    I've snuggled it in between some other plants in the cactus house for the winter :)
