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.
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.
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?
