Yuccas Do

And how. Then keep on doing some more.
Agaves get all the love, while yuccas just quietly get the job done.

Yucca filamentosa, probably ‘Golden Sword,’ name tag lost long ago. Hardy to zone 5.

    Yuccas somehow aren’t as sexy as agaves, but they sure do pull their weight in the garden, especially in winter, when their less hardy agave friends might be turning to mush.

    And for many of us they are uncomplainingly hardy, while the Agave species need to be sorted through and sited very carefully.

    Well, can we agree to love them both? 🙂

  4. Hallelujah! I try to give my yuccas plenty of love…they are indispensable in my very wet spiky garden.

    I have admired yuccas on both your blogs, Pam and Loree. Sammy, Y. rostrata, is quite the looker in the danger garden.
    Hoov, very sensible, and I do love them both.
    Les, they’re great plants in their own right, not just substitutes for agaves. Hope I didn’t imply that.
