Hey Bill,
I notice on Ray's humifusa that the stigmas are white/yellow and not green like we were discussing? Any thoughts on that?

Hadn't looked that closely but I can see the yellow contrast.
Hard to say Daiv, it might have a distant relative but I believe Ray's opuntia is humifusa and a nice one.

With the weather you have been getting this spring and summer, I'm more than happy you were able to show up at all. :D
Looks like a score to me with a perfect blossom!!!! :cheers: :thumbleft:

And my Yucca elata finally thought it was tall enough to open up. Needed a ladder to get a good pic(which I didn't do), the whole thing is at least 15'tall.

Too cool!!! I wish my yucca would bloom, it never has...I pulled it out of a dumpster about 10 years ago, it wasn't dead yet and the people were trashing it. :evil: I've nursed it back to health. Then this spring we cut some "branches" off and made more plants, and stuck the main plant in the ground. I thought it would bloom for sure after all of that. :roll:

I thought my Y. elata flower stock was tall at seven feet. But yours beats mine by more than twice the height!! :shock:

I'm with Moonbeam. I have a yucca, and cuttings from it, that date back to the '70s. I'm beginning to think it is just not the "blooming kind"... :roll:
