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.

Hi all,

not the landscape like yours but some of my Yucca hybrids:

Yucca "Marcel" - Y. flaccida "Bright Edge " x thompsoniana

20211105_170605.thumb.jpg.0a2b8688f301b4d6ace81ff7276e3de2.jpg

All are planted outside for more than two years and seem to have no problems with our climate. Some fungus but nothing critical.

These are all at Plant Delights Nursery, all cultivated specimens. This is honestly a fraction of their yucca collection that’s planted.

Yucca Linearifolia. Yucca Queretaroensis is similar in appearance but far rarer. Linearifolia can be green to blue depending on the original locality. There’s a few pictures teddytn just posted above of specimen at Plants Delight Nursery in North Carolina. They are both cold hardy and tolerant of rain. As long as where they are planted immediately drains, standing water will kill them.

Amazing pictures. Thanks for showing. I love these Yucca hybrids as most of them do better in my climate. Unfortunately seeds are rare and nearly unavailable in Europe.

The Y. linearifolia "Line dance" looks perfect. At the beginning of Corona a friend from the US send me a rhizome via a friend from Switzerland. After five month of shipping time it arrived and was completely dry and dead. Damned Corona.....

I can confirm that Y. linearifolia seems to be hardy to at least -15,2°C / 4,6°F and has no problems with wet climate as it survibed last winter without any defects. All if my small seedlings outside do not get any protection and do fine. Y. queretaroensis is much more critical and will stay potted for all time here.

Are the leaves of Yucca Linearifolia stiff and sharp or are they somewhat soft?  If you touch the pointed end is it like walking into a porcupine?

I bought both forms that PDN sold a few years ago, and the leaves are quite flexible. I've only drawn a small amount of blood twice that I can recall. I think they're safe to plant anywhere in your garden.

The very end can give you a minor poke but otherwise it’s not an aggressive plant. Dasylirion Quandrangulatum/Longissimum have a similar green look but with rounded ends. They have wider rosettes but are slower growing and in my experience very finicky in wet humid environments. I would recommend Yucca Linearifolia

You can find them in the Austin or Dallas area. Probably not worth driving alone for. The Great Outdoor Nursery in Austin has several with single to multi trunked, in the 2-4 foot range. Not cheap, $200-400+

Fantastic Yuccas. Y. linearifolia is one of my favourites. Especially when being older they look perfect. I'm sure your little one will grow fast.

Still on my list to make it down there at some point. I have a small spot against my foundation that I can’t fit a palm, but I think a thompsoniana will be perfect there. Thank you

Yucca treculeana is impervious to deer and cold, but the grasshoppers sure caused some trouble this year.

Yucca mysterio lol. A friend of mine spotted this guy on an access road to some power lines. He dug a few of the offsets and was kind enough to share a few! Super cool, I don’t have this variety. Thinner leaves, semi stiff, no filaments, reddish color up by the leaf termination. Any ideas???4C4C3866-8802-4DB6-80F1-EEF43705FB23.thumb.jpeg.5699e01d8679b5230b00f65d89adf3ca.jpeg4C896761-8884-478B-ACF1-1AEABE11A9FB.thumb.jpeg.26aac5cb8a7d51e831874db94c525532.jpeg

I found what appears to be a natural hybrid of Yucca Rupicola x Constricta south of Marble Falls, Texas. It’s not something commonly seen desite the fact they both grow heavily in this area.

Hi, 

Nice young plants. Did you seed juvenile plants with curved leaves inside these hybrids?

I'm sure there are so many interesting hybrids out there.

I only spotted the yucca pictured. Unfortunately they were right off a busy state highway, and in front of someone’s property, although heavy trees obscured their view. I’ll try to go back later.

      I have noticed these things growing like rockets around London to the point that they start dominating their space. They seem to gain quite a bit of vertical height very quickly as well in these sheltered London gardens. I'm assuming they were all planted as tiny 'houseplants' from B&Q and Homebase, which have grown big. These are found everywhere in London now as you will see...









       
      This one I have already posted before. It's one of the biggest for sure. 

       
      Check out the size of this south London Elephantipes in Peckham...!!!


       
      Here's another big one in a Chiswick front garden, however I cannot find the exact street view location of it unfortunately. 



       
      There's plenty more out there...

      @Axel Amsterdam Anymore you can contribute to this list? I know you are the main guy for uncovering Yucca's in northwest Europe. I have spotted far bigger ones in the past around London, but I can't remember where they are exactly now? I'm pretty sure I have missed 2-3 of the biggest London Elephantipes...? I couldn't find the exact location the big multi-head one in Chiswick.

      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?
