John, #3 is my favorite!
Does this yucca die after flowering (I hope not!)?

I like #1 best, John. It shows the beauty of the entire plant when it is in bloom. Way to go!

Very good pictures of a plant that is hard to capture.

I don't think the base plantdies but the stalk does. They will shoot out a new stalk each year. Do yours have as lethally sharp leaves as ours do? Your picture made it look like that plant had wider and perhaps not as stiff leaves.

John, how do you link the thumbnails of your photos on zoto into the body of your post? Very nice shots again, btw.

This is my neighbours plant and yes mtngal good question on the leaves the one in the photos is broad leaved now I did not touch them so can't say... I myself have a young one and the leaves are narrow and stiif not sharp edged .... this genus of Yucca is the banana yucca and I guess there will be many varieties and even the flowers will vary what flower I get I will have to wait and see.

Hi Rainer

1 After upload I move the images to a gallery existing or new (I like ripple gray template)

2 Enter the gallery and several ways

Drag across the required images with left mouse button and they will dim (selected)

then copy (cntrl C)

OR

Hold CNTRL key down then click in thumbnail window (blue border appears) ditto for the image no (blue border appears)
then copy (cntrl C)

Now start a new topic and just use cntrl V in the text window and images will appear

example

you can post many and arrange them as you wish

see some of Svens older topics for fine examples

HTH
