Hi Tim, beautiful flowers and seedpods. You're more successful than me, here no pods. Eckhard

I'm sure you'll have luck soon. Try to pollenate many pods. Collect lots of pollen and take to another Yucca.

I spray the blooms to kill the beetles.......... too bad but I'm killing the Yucca moths too. Late season blooms from cernua and constricta x filamentosa do form pods some years from moths since the beetles are less prominent. Loads of pods forming from Y. filamentosa x rostrata X filamentosa x elata Y. filamentosa x elata X filamentosa x rostrata These are my best two Yuccas, here's the filamentosa x elata with a very long bloom

Hi Tim, these hybrids sound great. Lots of potential for colder areas Eckhard
