Scary Yucca

 Every year I am freaked out by this giant thing.. It is very heavy & strong- sort of plant engineering marvel, yet spiky, scary exotic plant monster at end of garden…a sort of nightmare throwback to that 1950’s novel & indeed childhood viewing of 1981 BBC Series Day of the Triffids. Is it a type of ‘Yucca’?

      May indeed be a rellie Smitty…just back from South Africa & this Protea you speak of seems a more cuddlier, happy out in restaurant vases version than this spiky very weighted monstrosity.

      Christ the noise those triffids made, spraying the green goo sauntering down surburban Blighty.

    ‘Day Of The Triffids’ is an amazing book.

    There used to be a thin tree in the neighbours back garden and the way it swayed…

    Half right. This is beschorneria yuccoides- a species of succulent plant belonging to the family asparagaceae! We call it the dragon plant.
