Re: Yucca 'constricta x filamentosa' x 'filata'
I "found" a small potted plant of Yucca arkansana 'Moud City, MO', those in the garden had died during one of the last 3 hard "Yucca and Cactus killer winters". So maybe I can make another batch of hybrids like yours some day in the future :-)
I still can't see any Yucca (constricta x filamentosa) x ('Bright Edge' x glauca) seedlings yet. So I might have to ask Horst to trade some plants with him next season. But I still have 2 very young seedlings of your "Big Mama" :-)
Your seedlings of Yucca (constricta x filamentosa) x ('Bright Edge' x glauca) looks great when were the seeds sown? As they looks now, they seem to have leaves which differ in width, it will be interesting to see if they continues to do that. The pollen parent Yucca 'Bright Edge' x glauca did not grow a new rosette inside the old which bloomed, but it is sending up several new rosettes from the rhizomes.
The #2001A Yucca "Karlsruhensis type 2" x elata on the photo is from 2011,
we don't have any Yuccas in bloom up here in the north yet. We will have less than 20 blooming rosettes this year, almost all in plants of the Yucca filamentosa/flaccida complex. There will within the next 2-3 weeks have
flowers in one of our Yucca "Karlsruhensis type 2", which usually give very nice hybrid "Children" with lots of fibers. It would be very interesting to use some of your tall Yucca constricta x filamentosa on this small dwarf Yucca. Yucca"Karlsruhensis type 2" is normally easy to pollinate and even if it has very small seed pods the few seeds are usually very good to germinate.
The seeds of #2001A Yucca "Karlsruhensis type 2" x elata is also germinating very well from most of the seed pods.
Have a nice day.
P.S. Remember, that I have a large envelope with MANY hybrid-seeds for you, but I need the USDA seed import permit from you :-)
