I have several Yuccas in the garden.They are hardy but if the flowering part appears at the wrong time we finish up without the flowers we might expect. This season the flower stalks came in the Autumn and so when the Winter came they were affected by the frost even though we had generally a mild Winter. One of them seems to be safe and despite the cold weather we should get about Tuesday night, I hope it will bloom.

Fingers crossed for that, Dick.

They are lovely placed in mixed beds and add structure I think

They have very exotic flowers.

Mine are at the exact same stage, Dick.  And I am amazed they survived the huge gales this winter.  Quite often the winter winds strip off the flower buds.

Yuccas thrive in my boggy area! I was amazed as I thought they were for very dry places they look mediteranean.

Hopefully they will survive and flower well for you.

Thank you all. Mary, on a number of occasions I had these exotic flowers when the timing is right. If the flower buds were to come now things would be really good. Margot, you tend to get it wild in Donegal unlike us.
