CENTER PIECE OF THE SUNKEN GARDEN

The soft leaf yucca, Yucca recurvifolia blooms for the second time and lights up the fall garden.

  1. The garden looks beautiful! I wish we had Yuccas up here that bloomed repeatedly.

  4. I think that most Yuccas growing here are the same species, but I'm not sure what it is exactly. Most Yuccas look the same to me. (I did see a couple old ones recently a few blocks away that are forming trunks -- they must be a different species.)

  7. Two times in one year...I did not think that was possible. All I can say is this; a garden will always surprise you! Plus, the plants never read gardening books, so they don't know what they can and can't do! LOL
    Beautiful!

  8. I've seen several cases of unusual repeat bloomers this year. I love it! It feels like a marvelous bonus. My Texas Senna is putting on it's second show of year and my night blooming cereus have seemingly bloomed non-stop. It's a nice treat.

  9. Each fall in my 20 yrs in Abq, Y. recurvifolia blooms faithfully now, even into Nov. Some are now, in landscapes (and they are way overused here, not looking as good as your's and others I've seen in your area). Maybe repeat flowering in fall is an adaptation to more favorable moisture conditions?

    Stunning, the way it's captured at both times of the day!

  10. Love all of those purples and pinks! Is that gomphrena in the foreground?
