    I posted this photo a few days ago or thought I did but no one could see the photo. So I am trying again. These yucca along our driveway have done wonderful this year - several of them at least seven ft. tall.

    I'm glad you got your pic posted!! Your yucca are very pretty! The field between my house and Glendann's is full of yucca!! I dug one up to transplant in my yard and boy they have really long taproots!! Sadly it did not transplant well and it died.

    I have variegated yuccas that really look nice. I never used to like the plant but in the right spot it can be quite a looker. Yours is nice.

    7 feet! They look great there. I'm not familiar with them, but will have to give them a looking over next time I see one at a nursery. :)

    My plants all came from a firend about 5 years ago. They were in the yard of a home they bought - they thought they were ugly - I saved them before they tossed them out.

    Last year was the first year that we had many blooms so I guess they need to be in for awhile before a lot of blossoms are produced.

    When we first moved here the former owner had yuccas in an area which is now pasture. Sheep and horses love the stuff and it just keeps coming back. I saw an herbal remedy for pain relief in horses in which yucca was a main ingredient. Does anybody know about this supposed property of yucca? If it does indeed work, I must have horses and sheep that feel fairly good most of the time.
