Trunking Yuccas and Agaves

Springpatch77July 28, 2011

Has anyone in the Midwest tried to grow Yucca Rostrata, Faxoniana or Agave Harvardiana or Parryi? If so how did it go with them? I'm thinking about planting them next year but I'm worried about creating a big sandy, rocky pit in my yard and not having it work out.

For the record, I've now grown all but agave harvardiana outside year round and they have all survived as long as you keep them dry in the winter. I cover them with clear plastic containers that have holes drilled in them to keep the air flowing to release humidity.
