Re: Maryland Yucca Filamentosas in bloom
*Those were given to me. I'm not sure if these are native or not. I've never seen them naturalized anywhere. I've seen Y. Gloriosas a lot while hiking and at several East Coast beaches. In wooded shade the Y. Gloriosas still get tunks but the whole plants stay small and the leaves are not as stiff.
*I never thought of specific day length as a bloom trigger. Of course most flowering plants here grow & bloom on longer, warmer days. I'll watch for specific bloom times next year. I know that if yesterday wasn't overcast that it wouldn't be completely dark until just after 10 PM.
*I've seen unknown Yucca varieties and S. minors in bloom together in VA Beach some yrs ago and until I looked closer I couldn't tell the difference. My group is on the north side of a tree on a slight bluff.
