A very interesting Y gloriosa form in NC. http://www.carolinanature.com/trees/yugl.html

This looks like the gloriosa I collected seed from at Topsail Island a few years ago. The pods were dry and variably shaped more like filimentosa than aloifolia. Am pretty sure this is the pic I posted here regarding them about 6 years ago? Eckhard; if the fruit you collected at Kitty Hawk were shriveled and dark blue or black they were probably aloifolia. Aloifolia pods are hard and green when unripe and not capsules.

Hi Don, when I collected the seeds it wasn't possible to collect complete and closed seed pods. The seed pods must have been from the year before and where completely dry like the ones on your picture but mostly open. I could only pick seeds from the pods where they did not open totally and seeds where capt inside. It took me a lot of Yuccas to get around 50 seeds each. Actually I saw a few of them and they still germinate. Hopefully within a few years I will show pictures of the plants. Eckhard

Great photo showing those seed pods!

Hi Tim, when I was in the US last year we also visited NC (Kitty Hawk) and there I collected some seeds of trunk building Yucca. To be honest, I didn't check their leaves so we have to wait a few years to see if I got some of the Yucca from your link. Regards Eckhard

I really like the racemose bloom on that gloriosa.
