    millenium plant?

    I think this is the name. It blooms very rarely and looks like a cactus type desserty plant. I like them and we have 3 of them but I want to transplant. Anyone know if this is possable?

    WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAIT a minute!!!! You are talking about my state flower!!!

    From http://www.50states.com/flower/newmexico.htm :

    New Mexico State Flower
    Yucca flower
    Yucca glauca

    The yucca was adopted as the State Flower on March 14, 1927. The yucca is a member of the lily family and a symbol of sturdiness as well as beauty. In the early summer, pale ivory flowers bloom at the tips of its long, fibrous stalks. At the base of the plant are broad, sharpedged leaves that look like stilettos. The yucca sometimes grows to the height of a small tree.

    Well that's what the guy said it was.... a yucca. They are kind of desserty looking and sharp leaves. The bloom was GORGEOUS and lasted for several weeks? But they are prickly leaves. I might move them to the tropical part of our garden where the palms and bamboo are. Those blooms don't do the yucca justice!!! They are like a talll stalk of blooms upwards from the plant. They smell nice too.

    We just have a hodge podge of stuff that doesn't go together in our driveway... unkempt crepe murdle, the 3 yucca plants, 4 twiggy cherry laurel trees, and some massive ginger that takes over half the driveway. We don't want the cherry laurel as the berries get blue during a certain part of the year and that leaves blue bird poop on your car. The yucca is different but prickly so I dnon't want that where we get out of the car. The crepe murdle is pretty and that's at the end of the driveway so I want that to stay.
