Beaked Blue Yucca

 


This is one of the prettiest times of the year around here in my garden. I took a few shots with my phone the last couple days.

The Hong Kong orchid and jacarandas are blooming, the sage and agapanthus are grooving, the last great push before the heat. 

Lots of ornamentals are displaying their flowers, giving the last push for pollination and survival of their progeny.


And my yucca rostrata tissue culture hybrid has thrown a magnificent 40" plus bloom. 

What a spike!


I had a cancer treatment today in San Diego. 

I am going to go home and take a warm bath and a nap and then hang out in the yard and watch the birds and bees go to town in the garden.

I love this flower. It is also called a Beaked Yucca, Adam's Yucca, Sapphire Skies, Nordstrom Yucca or Big Bend yucca.

I got mine from Steve Dooey and am told by others that it is actually a rare cultivar.

I never see the guy but will have to ask him next time I run into him.
