Yucca, Common (Yucca filamentosa), packet of 20 seeds
Family: Agave (Agavaceae)
Hardy to Zones 4 to 10.
(Adam’s Needle, Spanish Bayonet) Evergreen, fibrous-leaved monocot native to the American SE. Trunkless, palm-like, drought and cold resistant, with large spires of cream-colored flowers. The leaves can be used to make rope, the roots used to make soap. Plant prefers full sun and dryish, fast-draining soils. Sow seed in sandy mix in flats or pots. Plant 1/4 inch deep, tamp firmly, and keep evenly moist and warm until germination, which takes about a week. Work plants up in successively larger pots until they are sufficiently sized to survive the rigors of landscape or garden. Keep weeds back by weeding and then mulching around the plant with sand.

I planted your Yucca filamentosa seeds on 1/29/19 and began to see germination by 2/13/19 (fifteen days). This photo taken today, 12/10/19, shows our pots of strong Adam’s Needle Yucca plants, ready for winter.

Nice work! Yucca seeds generally last 3 years in storage and so we do endeavor to keep stock as recent as possible. You might try the Joshua Tree seeds also, these are giving very high germ rates right now. r
