I don't have a picture of my varigated yucca but I chose it for it's contrasting sword type leaves
It does get the center stake with the hanging half egg shaped flowers.
When I lived in Colorado I thought the green ones were intgeresting; the green one I have now dies over the winter and has a long time to recover; it is very small. I am going to dig it up this winter and keep it in the garage.

Do you have a pic of your yucca plants? A true yucca plant has tough, sword-shaped leaves and large terminal panicles of white or whitish flowers. I'm just curious if yours is a true yucca. They grow in the wild out here. Beautiful plant. Check this out and see. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yucca

Mine die back to the ground in the winter (at negative temps everything does except trees and bushes), but each spring they come back up. I made over a flower bed a few years ago and pulled out all the daylilies. I dumped them on my compost pile, tubers and roots exposed to the air, and they still sprouted! It gets pretty hot here in the summer, but we also have alot of humidity, and this year alot of rain. So I would guess you ladies don't have enough water where you're at for them.

I have some of those plants in my garden. It's nice to know I don't have to water them every day when there is no rain. However, we've had so much rain lately, I have to worry about those that don't like wet feet. The ground was still quishy yesterday after no rain for about 20 hours! I wonder if I need to think about building an ark . . . . .
