After reading about it on Alpine-L, possibly, or perhaps in one of Bob's books, I managed to germinate a few Yucca harrimaniae from last year's NARGS Seedex. I hope to see some get to flowering size - how long would it take? I wonder how big they'll get and whether I may have to site them very carefully to avoid those sharp leaves! Weeding will definitely be an issue those I think the Puya we have growing in another part of the rock garden would be worse - it has barbs facing downwards and upwards along the leaf edge so you're caught anyway you try to get in close!
