Mark your Y.rostrata looks amazing. Thank you for sharing it. I remember when the tip of the spikes was even with that fence.
Its grown very well too. The old standard description is 5 feet in ten years but looks like you had better results. Your part of the country along the Mid-Atlantic coastal region is well known as the best place to see them growing anywhere in the United States, east of the Mississippi and there are some amazing yuccas there. The indigenous peoples of Northern Mexico had many names for Yucca Rostrata but my favorite name they used was Palmita and is still used today!
I cant today but will post a photo of my rostrata x blue sapphire in a day or two. Thanks friend!
