Note: All the Yucca plants #1 through #11 are all wild and native Yucca flaccida and or Yucca filamentosa. Those two Yucca species are the only native Yucca plants here. These are also far off in the woods, so they are not hybrids, just natural variation of the species.
What do you all think about this wild Yucca I found. Is this purple, orange, yellow, and red color a mutation, or is it a stressed Yucca?
You can see the purple color near the tips and the other colors near the center:
I transplanted that very narrow leaf Yucca flaccida to the garden:
Some very narrow and flexible grass like Yucca flaccida I discovered, I took a small side sprout from this one to plant in the garden. Some people might confuse this with tall fescue:
A Yucca that was growing up through the fallen branches of a tree (so it was elongated reaching for light) but it had narrow flexible leaves also, so I transplanted it as well:
Old Yucca, about 6 foot (1.82m) leaf spread I think:
Yucca I brought up from the woods several years ago:
#8 & 9
Wild ones here sometimes get a tiny "trunk" or stem 3 to 7 inches tall:
I thought this one was neat looking one because of the orderly curls of the filaments:
Couple of my bought and planted Yucca plants here:
Yucca filamentosa 'Color Guard'
2.5 feet tall (76.2 cm)
6" "trunk" (15.24 cm)
Around 7 to 10 years old
Yucca recurvifolia 'Cousin It'
Colorful Yucca in woods, and lots of Yucca variation in the area... - Josh 7a AL November 20, 2011, 4:37 am
