Re: Old rotten-trunked Y. gloriosa update - still going
Chances are awfully good that you are confusing me with the Yucca Guru, Jim Kelly (aka "Jim K") from NJ. Jim is the master of all things yucca.
I used to not pay yuccas much mind until seeing all his posts, along with the contributions of others here, when they had dialogues with him. I became excited about yuccas from Jim. I am picky, though. I don't love ALL yuccas, but I like most of the major species: rostrata, filamentosa, recurvifolia, brevifolia, perhaps a couple others.
Thank you for your insights on gloriosa/recurvifolia!
