The Yucca plant in our garden has sent out this very tall – over ten feet – stalk. We are now waiting for it to bloom.

I got this plant from a neighbor. He was at the Post Office and there were workers uprooting several Yucca plants from the garden there. He asked if he could have some, and they said, take them all. So he brought them back and gave me this one.

I planted it first in a rock garden, which was later sacrificed during our home extension work and the Yucca went in between the grapefruit and the Bakul, both of which were too shady for its liking. It didn’t grow at all there. Then I decided to move it to a sunnier corner and it has been thriving ever since.
