212/366: yuccas are not yukky

Once again I am the recipient of someone’s spare plants. A friend had many yucca plants, and created some new ones that I am looking forward to putting in my garden.

Here is a sneak look at them before they find a new home.

They have nice firm leaves with an elegant line….

Shock, horror! I decided to google yucca plant pictures, and it led me to ASPCA (Animal Poison Control Center) and I found out that these plants are toxic to cats and dogs, causing vomiting and diarrhoea.

Now, knowing this, do I plant them or not? So maybe they are yukky after all.
