I want one of these yuccas

Post by Ste » Sun Feb 26, 2012 10:23 pm

First of all, does anyone know what type of yucca these are? I think they look great, I would love to get one but they seem really pricey to buy at this size. Around 900 euro's then delivered by pallet.

They look similar to rostrata? But I didn't know rostrata could multi-stem, although ive never seen one big enough lol

I've seen rostrata before with a few heads but they usually start further up the trunk. These on the photo seem to have branched quite low down. There's that many different type of yucca's that look the same, its hard to I.D it 100% icon_scratch

They are Yucca thompsoniana Ste.

I have one in my garden (not as big as those beauties though). The previous two winters have taken their toll on it though :(

I,ve bought a three stemmed Yucca Thompsoniana from the TC via Nigel... lovely plants and come from higher altitude than Rostratas are hardier as well. I did like the multi stemmed Rostrata but was swayed by the hardiness issue in the end.

I guess time is running out if you want something from the TC as Nigel will be able to get it for you at a fraction of the delivery costs the TC will charge.

They had a lovely Yucca linearifolia I wanted at €175 but wanted €331 to deliver it.
Not sure when Nigels lorry is leaving the TC for the UK though.

Grrrrrr.... thats the one I was after. I see it was reduced to €150. Did that reduce its postage or did Roland see sense and see it was absurd to charge for a pallet for a plant that could be handled quite easy??
I do like those Galeanas but despite their high price they sell quickly. Did you get one Simba?

Sorry about that Andy,
This is one I had my eye on for a long time too, and when they reduced the asking price, I just had to make another attempt to get that shipping issue resolved...

Because we can send packages via DPD till 1.75 cm height.
This plant is over 200 cm....
So if you don't mind that we bend the leaves, I am willing to change the shipping method.


So they managed to squeeze into €32 shipping and avoid the pallet cost...icon_thumright

Admittedly it's been plonked into a building site at for the moment, but will get star billing when the rockery bed is completed...
