There are some palms to keep it legal.

I didn't realize the trunks are so big!

Much more light....for the back of the Cactus bed

They look great! Definitely my favorite yucca!

And is that your saba in the background of the first pic? Looks good! What leaf is it up to now?
Thanks for sharing.

Nice! I have Agave guatemalensis (which looks very similar), and I normally pull off the leaf bases to reveal the lined pattern of the trunk.

Yea, Alex-it's the one holding on to the porch!

This will be leaf number 3,it took off in March during
all the 80F weather but quit during April.

I think the soil got to cold for it but it's moving again.

I guess this is z5b or just plain z5

Yea centralcali,it will be cool when the whole trunk looks like wood.

Thanks Y'all

I wonder how big it would have got if it didn't snap
in half the second year....

Heres a pic or 2 of the variegated Aloifolia I took last night....
they actually have decent little trunks on them
but you can't really see it in these pics...
