Yucca ‘Bright Edge’ is this week’s fave

Yucca ‘Bright Edge’

It’s easy to love a plant that weathers the storms and comes through looking as perky as ever. Such a plant is Yucca ‘Bright Edge’. The sedum ground cover around it is equally sturdy, so this is one little spot in my garden that doesn’t cause me to flinch as I pass by.

Can you see Bright’s baby in the background? I separated that pup from its mom at the time of planting in the fall of 2009. It has put on very little growth since then, but I can wait…satisfied that it lives.

When you see what it had to contend with last month (and the month before that), you can see why its survival instincts are cause for celebration.

    Yay, that’s a good one! Just yesterday I was admiring a bunch of them planted along Fremont. Yours looks especially lovely surrounded by the sedum (Cape Blanco?).

    Loree~Thanks! That sedum has been around so long I’ve forgotten which one it is. I’m sure it was before they started putting names like Cape Blanco on them, but I like it.

    I concur that it is a good one. I think Yuccas will replace a few of the Agaves/Phormiums I had planted, that turned to mush this past winter. At least I know the Yuccas will survive a bad winter. There are so many new interesting ones too.

    Matthew~Thanks for stopping by. See you at the swap?

    That yukka make a very nice statement Ricki – I have one in a pot – it would turn to mush in my garden. It looks really good amongst the Sedum.

    Angie~Funny how something that is pretty bullet-proof here won’t work for you, and vice-versa. Makes enjoying the things on your blog all the more special.

    While Yucca’s are not a favorite of mine, I see their merit, especially with what seems to be increasingly variable winter weather. Yours has survived the cold and wet well! Great pick for the week.

  8. ricki Says:

    Jenni~I hear you. This was the one bed that was going to be given over to these kinds of plants. Now that I know how tough they are I’m starting to work them in other places. They seem to be love them or hate them plants.
