Yucca

 

This Yucca has been in a pot in the garden for some years, perhaps five, and 2016 was the year in which it decided to flower.  This, incidentally, is not a B&W conversion, but as shot, in colour.  You can just see hints of colour here and there.

These are wonderful flowers. Great shot. love the sun/shadows and the touch of colour.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Astrid - they are quite an "architectural" plant!

A real treat for you then Tom. This might be one of those plant types that blooms every decade, exhausted by its last flowering
Tom Wilson: Rather just slow to mature, I think - it will probably continue to bloom annually - I hope!
I have not heard of this plant Tom, I assume it is rare or exotic here in England.
Tom Wilson: It's an import, certainly, but I think you'll find it in most garden centres. It's the same family as the agave from which tequila is made.
When they flower they stand out well, the lighting on this is good.
