Thank you. I have grabbed seeds from time to time. Before I got more into palms I germinated many of these. 
these habitats are within an hour of my home, so I’ve never ‘collected’ seeds, just taken a few here and there to mess with. 
Most were gifted or established in burn areas.

For me quite the opposite. I started with palms for indoors. But when i owned the house with garden it changed to Yuccas, Cacti and Agaves as I can only grow Trachies, Sabal minor and Needle-Palms in my are zone 7b. The last weekend was even challenging for them.

But Yuccas do fine so I collected many the last years. But nowadys it's hard to find true seeds.

You have any photos of Agave utahensis? I've seen a few down there in your neck of the desert, also some nice ferocactus around too.

Sure. I haven’t visited Agave recently, so pics are from last spring. Maybe April. Ferocactus is recent.

Do you know what the strappy leafed plant is?  It does not appear to be native.. (Very pretty...it looks almost like a beschnoreria)

Great thread! I am growing around 20 different kinds of Yucca (I love these!) but my favorite is also among the most ordinary ones: the Yucca Recurvafolia! I got a few from the local Lowes one day and put them in the ground. Nothing could phase these: Full sun, deep freeze, shade, drought, and even complete neglect still have them look good. It was one of the first plants I planted when I moved to Texas. This plant basically got me excited about gardening and palms (like a gateway drug). It gave me confidence as a beginner gardener that I could keep things alive in the garden. Also, this plant, with its broad, weeping leaves, has a very tropical feel to it. Put a few in select spots and it'll start to feel like a jungle real soon!

Yucca.jpg

I'm with you 100%.  I love em!!  Not exactly my palm "gateway", but you can stick those things anywhere and do anything with them and they look good :greenthumb:
You can buy them at Lowes.  You can propagate them.  You can decapitate them if they get too big...etc

It appeared to be a Manfreda, which are native to the area. I had planned on looking into which one when I got a chance. Texas Tuberose and Maculosa are native to central Texas but look different. Possibly Virginica which are native to Texas as well but I’m not sure which regions. Maybe someone else can answer.

My bet is one of the areas native Hymenocallis/Spider Lily. If you look closely, you can see the v shape to the leaves/ prominent mid-rib in a few.

Thinking this is Yucca filifera. Desert Botanical's collection. On the "to add" list.

If you want to see the biggest one of these I’ve ever seen and maybe you too - come swing by Wickenburg one of these days and I’ll show you the yard and the plants.  2 blocks down the road is one of these monsters growing in shade that has to be 18ft tall with a 2ft wide trunk and 5ft wide crown.

I have noticed that as a result of February's cold weather that flowering in various yuccas has been delayed and the panicle growth is stunted. Usually the yuccas flower around the beginning of spring turkey season, but this year blooming is just starting in April.

The panicle should be a least a foot taller and the flowers should be spread apart more. This is one of the few yuccas I've seen in bloom this year.

I finally found some old seed pods on a Yucca Constricta. They don’t stand out as much as some species, but they are adapted to the area. None, including the million seedlings seemed phased by February.

Fish hook barrel-Ferocactus Wislizeni . I was kind of surprised to see it survived, it likely saw 3*F out there. I had read they are hardy to 10-15*F, but there are variants in New Mexico. So obviously hardier.

Thanks! I was driving lost In neighborhood around Zilker, and I saw one that “looked” a lot like that one at a corner of someone’s yard. It looked good. But it was around 10F at that location. Maybe had more red thorns.

Yeah, Ferocactus thorns show a lot more color when they are wet, and of course other factors.

If you are wanting a large one, I bought a 15 gallon size from this Nursery 2-3 years ago. The $300 includes shipping I believe, but contact them. The cactus is huge.

Be advised that many Ferocacti will "lean"  -typically toward the south or west- as they grow.  So they won't always stay perfectly straight as they get big.   Fatties can put on enough pounds that they can tip over/ rip themselves out of the ground and won't be easy to re-orient/ re-root. Some people completely lop off the tops and re-root when this happens. No clue what the success rate of doing something that drastic would be though. Can't imagine attempting that with something this massive.

See tipsy Barrels out in habitat often as well..

Well this is what I was thinking, I am likely going to have several dead trunks of washingtonia. The bases will take forever to rot. I saw the process of grinding trunks and it looks terrible. So I figure if they are cut straight, I will use them as plant stands and put different Yuccas and agaves on them in big pots, along with some drought tolerant trailing vines. 
Ya think?

thanks for the link!

Just for scale, at 5', this is one of the shorter trunks of that yucca, the tallest is over 6'.

I know this is a yucca thread.. but here is a nice compass barrel in Albuquerque.. slightly common desert accent here..and prolly the largest barrel that can grow here... these have seen below zero. 

 

Always wanted to ask Nathan if there are any similar hardy large barrels..  I have 2 in ground.

Only other Ferocactus i can think of that would be about as hardy as F. wislizeni would be F. hamatacanthus. Looks like it will stay smaller though. Couple others may tolerate down to 15F, maybe slightly lower for short periods if kept bone dry and grown on the south side of a building. Worth a try at lest.

I can collect seeds from them pretty easily. The problem is the German government from my understanding is extremely strict on inspecting incoming packages? I don’t have an easy way to get a phytosanitary certificate. If you have an easy solution for that, I have no problem mailing you seeds.

Hi Daniel,

I never had problems in receiving seeds if being sent to my company.  Dave (DoomsDave) has sent palm seeds many times without problems. Also a friend from Massachusetts sent several packages of Yucca seeds without any problem.  The only danger for Germany from my point of view is sending plants or rhizomes.  Otherwise we could also try my second choice which is a friend living in Switzerland. He receives also plants from the US without problems.

Would be really great if you could send seeds and for identification some pictures of the mothers by e-mail. For sure I will pay for shipping costs and packaging.

Ok, let me know which you’re interested in and I will try to collect seed. It will be atleast a couple weeks before I can go back out.

      I bought the plant in the photos as an unnamed yucca at a garden club sale several years ago. It has done very well in my SWFL climate and looks good in all weather.  It offsets by means of stolons. Can anyone tell me what species of yucca it is or confirm it is indeed a yucca? My husband wonders if it actually might be an agave but it doesn't look like one to me.

      This yucca has had pink tint for a couple of years.  Is this a nutrient deficiency? normal for young bright edge yuccas? or could it be the way it will grow?  Thanks

      I have some old Yucca rostrata seeds from a year or two ago and have them soaking in water, most sank over time, does anyone think it would be worth a shot trying to germinate them?

      Hello, I am bad with yuccas, so this may be a basic one. I am just South of Richmond, VA and I found this little stand of yuccas, but I have no idea what they are. I broke off a seed stalk to one of them and there were only three intact seeds left. Do you know what these are? Also, how easy is it to germinate yucca seeds? Do they need anything special?
