As a reference, Here are standard Yucca Reverchonii found earlier in my trip.

Blue Yucca Torreyi in Southwest Texas. The species can vary from dark green to blue/silver, and anywhere in between. These populations are from north of Rocksprings to west of Del Rio, around the Amistad Reservoir and Seminole Canyon.

Amazing pictures. Had seen some more greenish Y. torreyi close to Carlsbad cavern and was able to collect seeds in 2019. Here's a picture.

Looks different to the one I grow as reverchonii in my front yard. Will take a picture this weekend. Mine has much more straight leaves.

They may have been crossed with Rupicola long ago. I saw Reverchonii near Kerrville, Texas that had twisted center leaves.

There were green, blue, and silver variations. I had thought the color was natural. But based on the other hybrids I saw, and the thinner leaves of some of the extremely silver variants, I’m wondering if it’s a hybrid with Thompsoniana or Rostrata? Thompsoniana is in this area and Rostrata within 100 miles of there to the west in Black Gap, and to south in Mexico. Yucca Rigida also grows to the south in the Mexican state of Coahuila.

      Hey,
      I found this huge Yucca in Southern Italy and was wondering which variety it is.
      Does somebody grow them in their garden and know which one it is? 
      From my research on the Internet it could be an aloifolia or gigantea.
      Cheers,
      Will

      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?
