Pods

There are several yucca plants in my yard that put up flowering stems that must be close to 20 ft (6 m) tall. The flowers are cream colored bell shapes in a cluster at the top of the stem. The stems are surprisingly thick and heavy, heavy enough to make walking sticks. The photo is of seed pods that have opened up. I like the elegance of their shapes.

I don't know if yucca would grow here but I know several people in Southern British Columbia who grow this plant in their gardens.

Thanks Kris! Hi Nerissa, is it a drier climate in Southern BC? You know I've fantasized about moving there but I've thought the climate would be like Oregon, lots of rain and grey skies. While I've lived in Oregon, I'm after in living in such a sunny place if I could face living somewhere rainy. :(
