Cheshire Tropics

Hi my Sikkimensis came through winter fine as i described for the Basjoo in the Banana section. You can cut the point off the Yucca cut just above the leaf if you so wish. Nice collection though

... meaning to join for a while. Having filled every inch of space in my current beds we’re now building a new raised sloped bed which will contain Yucca rostrata, rigida, filifera, Cycas revolutas, a Waggie, spiral aloe, amongst others. This bed will get a lot of sun and I know the key is drainage ...

... drought tolerant plants but I hope to create that jungle look. I have purchased 2 200L water butts to hopefully lessen my water bill this summer Yucca and agave do fit in well with a jungle theme. They give a nice contrast to the large leaves that form the base of jungle foliage. If everything ...

I'm not surprised they survive in Costa Rotherham ,I've started buying my vulcanic rock from around that area!. If you read my post karl you will see I said mine rotted off whereas tender succulents in the same area of the garden haven't. Did you mean volcanic rock? Its limestone here which is sedi...

yucca aloifolia purpurea

yucca aloifolia purpurea

... Can't remember exactly at what temp but it turned to mush at just a few degees below freezing. Very pretty plant. It's not a cultivar of Yucca aloifolia which others have commented on as being 'very spiky', but, in reality, is Yucca desmetiana, a totally different species. https://worldofsucculents.com/yucca-desmetiana/

yucca aloifolia purpurea

Jim, I've lost two of them over separate periods, there lovely plants once you get them established although never heard of them being root hardy once the foliage/ Centre has rotted.

yucca aloifolia purpurea

That looks like the purple yucca we put in about two or three years ago. It broke off at the stem, not cold hardy enough. I was going to throw it away but someone suggested cutting the dead base off and potting it up. Its growing nicely ...

I know this is an old post but I went to Akamba today and they had several of these for £12. Decent plants too. Also picked up a Melianthus Major for £8.50. (Standard size wine bottle for perspective).

Yucca - gloriosa and variegated, filamentosa and color guard, aloifolia purpurea (tender/not tender) seen mixed reviews and elephantipes (has taken ...
