Hard hit Yucca Treculeana overlooking the Colorado River in Kingsland, Texas. This area probably saw 2 nights of 3*F and 5 days below freezing in February.file.php?id=75008file.php?id=75007file.php?id=75006file.php?id=75005file.php?id=75004file.php?id=75003file.php?id=75002file.php?id=75001file.php?id=74999

Love the Opuntia in the first picture,  do you have an ID? Hope the Y. treculeanas will recover from that crazy temps.

Thanks for showing these pictures.

Saw these yucca on my travels today, these were in a private garden and I couldn’t get any closer. I’ve never seen any in person that had a recumbent trunk. Anyone familiar with these? There were at least 5 different specimens all looked very similar in age and exactly the same growth habit.84372BDB-55C3-4670-A259-4FD95B944ABE.thumb.jpeg.a79f56554834fefa83327b614caed37b.jpegF28D00C8-ADBA-438D-9E29-987EEFD888F1.thumb.jpeg.1d3fb706d6a73775ead4d5aa7051ba58.jpeg

I'm not 100% sure but those look like Yucca recurvifolia.  I don't know if that leaning trunk is a trait of recurvifolia or it's suffering from some sort of deficiency.

They do look like recurvifolia for sure. It’s just got me scratching my head. There’s native yucca, naturalized, and cultivated around here. Never seen one lay over like that, let alone 5.

Y. recurvifolia ..or more recently, Y. gloriosa var. tristis.  https://www.inaturalist.org/taxon_changes/47521

If you look through photos here, you'll see some specimens that form ground hugging trunks, likely a response being trampled by animals, growing in more shade than others in more sun, or falling over in soggy soil: https://www.inaturalist.org/taxa/372245-Yucca-recurvifolia/browse_photos

Thanks. Opuntia Engelmannii var. Lindheimeri or Opuntia Lindheimeri depending on the source. That is towards the Northern limit of Treculeana’s natural range, but I think most will recover. Some looked mostly undamaged.

I have a few in my yard, it doesn't take much to keep them out, even bird netting seems to stop them.

They do make a lot of noise and are quite easy to sneak up on, but they do carry leprosy.

When I moved here in 2006 no armadillos, now I feel like I see one everyday either alive or dead on the side of the road, another sign there may be some zone shift happening.

Unfortunately no, they crossed the Rio Grande in the 1800s and were introduced in Florida as well. They have plenty of food and shelter with few if any predators. Like white tailed deer, the automobile is the only real mechanism for population control. There's an ebb and flow to their population in my area, they were very common in the 80s and 90s and slowly decreased until about 2015, now they are everywhere again.

Wonderful pictures.  Texas is one of the next areas on our list of places to be visited. Maybe 2025 or so. B)

Thanks. I have some of your seed together. Waiting on others. If you need recommendations on where to go/what to see let me know. I can offer ideas depending on what your plan is.

These are really good news and help me survive our cold and wet weather.  Normally when visiting an area my wife and I are interested in ancient cultures, national monuments and the true live.

In 2019 while visiting Southern Arizona and New Mexico we first thought about a stop over at the Big Bend NP but decided to do this during a trip to Texas in the future in order not to lose to much time for NM.

To be honest, the south western parts are our primary targets when visiting the US. But it will take some time until we come back to this area. If possible in 2022 we will redo our honeymoon trip through Florida 30 years ago. This was the time when my illness began by collecting seeds of a christmas palm. It germinateted and grew fine until it was forgotten outside during a thunderstorm which chopped of the head of it as the wind knocked over the palm.

Hardy plants too. One of the few that can be planted “wherever” as far as soil, sun and water and seems to do just fine.

That was thought exactly, gathering plants for a new bed. Hummingbirds have been all over the yard lately. Had to get it!

It's a great plant, and pretty tough. Regular species does get  a bit taller, flowers a little less than the cultivar " Break lights " which is used everywhere out here in commercial landscapes.  There's also a yellow/ whitish- flowered variety ( H. parvifolia " Yellow " ) that is just as hardy ( Supposedly down to zone 5 )

@Palmensammler the only yuccas I’ve had flower this year are filamentosa.

Hi,

Sorry for my late answer but last week was horrible (to much work, wife was hospitalized in an emergency) so time was and still is limited. For me  the same, only some Y. filamentosa and recurvifolia hybrids are flowering. Tomorrow I will try to take some pictures.

Hi,

here some of my flowering Yuccas:

Y. floribunda (purchased as recurvifolia), I call it "monster" as it can kill you with the terminal spines. I already lost a lot of blood.

20210614_204633.thumb.jpg.f390a4bc12e8a956fcbb35aa35fbc8fd.jpg

Y. filamentosa "aureovariegata"

20210614_204811.thumb.jpg.0a764d56976d84e2ef3e75c0021a168a.jpg

Y. recurvifola "Red bells" , maybe a hybrid too

20210614_204905.thumb.jpg.c1f822aef8e315008463a486a6591d9f.jpg

Y. filamentosa x rostrata

20210614_205004.thumb.jpg.b4611f42f95db844567897d4baa60380.jpg

20210614_205010.thumb.jpg.bab6d649a018bded452b1fc540757e3a.jpg

20210614_205017.thumb.jpg.f3477726a127458eadca948556f3a894.jpg

Will try to cross some of them.  just for fun and to get better in doing so.

I’m blown away, you weren’t kidding about having some hybrids! I wonder what that filamentosa x rostrata will look like in a few years? That’s so cool

Edit: I believe most of these to be Yucca Torreyi not Treculeana. Although some, such as the second picture look closer to Treculeana or may in fact be a hybrid of the two. Both are Native to the area.

Hi, agree that some of these look like torreyi but for example picture two looks like treculeana to me too. If there are hybrids between these two I need seeds.....could be a perfect looking Yucca for my yard.

Thanks for showing.

I have a Yucca queretaroensis is a pot on the patio.  Grown from RPS seeds some years back.  I remember the leaves on the seedlings were flat.

I think they found the RPS seeds were in fact Queretaroensis x Filifera, which is a natural hybrid that occurs(both species habitats overlap). Although yours seem to look a bit more pure.

If I can locate a plant with seeds I definitely will. I have standard Torreyi seed that I bought but probably will have leftovers to share. I’ll let you know. The last time I drove by the multihead Thompsoniana it appeared something was eating the flowers. There were a few left but I’m not sure if I’ll get seeds from those.

If I ever come to Texas we should have some beer together....

      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?
