Hi Tim! Wow! those beauties keep getting taller; is it one yucca with its offshoot or 2 separate yuccas that you planted very close?

Hi Edwin, I think it's an offshoot since they look identical. In their first year an offshoot developed and I never removed it. No offshoots since.

Hi Tim, thanks for the info, it gives me hope that someday I will have a nice trunking yucca, even one with an offshoot......by the way spring hasn't been kind to my yuccas, many that seemed ok when snow cleared have gotten worse and I think I lost 2 of my best hybrids!? I will post pics soon...

Too bad to hear about the damage. What was the low temperature?

Tim, the lowest we had was 11 F and an average of 26 F at night, mid 40's during the day. 3 days with a mix of snow & rain early april and 4 days of rain for the rest of the month. some of the hybrids started looking fine early April but looked pretty bad by the end of the month including the best looking filamentosa X rostrata(mailbox), I'm still clueless about what happened.....will post pics tomorrow
