This is the new yucca directly after being planted... already glowing brightly in the full sun.
And I really couldn't help but throw this one in here... agave medio picta alba! Finally!!
I didn't even think about this sedum when I bought the yucca (sorry David), the Oregon shoulder angel won out this time... but I think it worked out well.
Seeing this photo makes me even more determined to get the lighting sorted out one of these days. Then I can be done with the protruding pipes like the one you can see here. It obscures one of my wonderful little agave parryi.
This is my other yucca 'bright star' and part of the inspiration for buying another. It got a few brown spots last winter/spring but otherwise seemed to take the elements in stride. I actually find myself peaking out the window quite frequently to get a glimpse of its glowing foliage in the sunshine!
So it was an easy sell and I couldn't be more pleased!
