Where did I get the plant from:
I got as seeds in september 2003, from Diane Illingworth in Ontario, Canada, she collected the seeds from a variegated plant very much like Yucca 'Golden Sword'.
Short description of the plant:
Plant: acaulescent with several large rosettes, forming rhizomes. Leaves: dark gray green with beautiful yellow stripe in the center of the leaves, rather stiff, 60 long, 3,5-4 cm wide around the middle, with many rather thick curly fibers at the margin of the leaves. Inflorescence: pubescent, 125 cm high, paniculate with many branches held in an upright angle. Scape: starting from just above the leaves. Flowers: bell shaped, white, 5 to 7,5 cm across. Fruit purplish-green, smooth surface, slightly constricted. Seeds black, glossy, up to 5 x 7 mm.
Where do I grow the plant:
The seeds will be sown in the late spring 2004
It is very hardy in Ontario Canada, at this place the highest temperature in summer is 30C and down to -25 C in winter!
Below you can see the fruit with the larvae from the Yucca moth.
