More impending drama. The first beschorneria to bloom in my garden. I think it’s B. septentrionalis but won’t know until it blooms. The narrow leaves look a little yuccoides, and there has been some wild hybridizing going on among the species by clever people like Tony Avent and Martin Grantham The only other beschorneria in my garden was purchased last year from Annie’s Annuals, Beschorneria x ‘Martin Grantham Hybrids,’ with leaves 3 times as wide as the one pictured. This one about to bloom was probably bought from Hinkley’s Heronswood’s catalogue, and how long ago has that been, but I must have moved it every single year since purchase. These agave relatives would seem to want a bit of ground and sky to themselves. Not asking a lot, really. So just before it would disappear forever, smothered under exuberant surrounding foliage, I ‘d rescue, replant. Repeat 3 or 4 times. Moved last year again when painting on the west side of the house commenced, replanted in a very open, gravelly strip against the east fence. Voila! Now, that wasn’t so hard, was it?
