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.

I love yarrow too, it comes in such pretty colors! But like any new plant, you have to water it alot in the first year while it establishes itself.

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.

I see them here where there are trees and where people use lots of water.I sure wish I could risk the frivolous water use .They are gorgeous.

There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

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.

My Day Lilies looked good for most of the year, then they just died. Maybe it got too cold. Not sure.

We're dry as a bone here, but typical for this time of year.

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 . . . . .
