Re: A surprise flowering of my Yucca rostrata , a first for me .
They're really cool. Though native to the Southwest, they are encountered in a WIDE swath of the country. In the east, anywhere on the coastal plain from near NYC down through Florida and around the Gulf. They can take a lot of cold, but hate wet feet, and hence, being planted in clay -- like mine is. Give them free draining sandy soil with a little lime and they're as happy as clams.
