My worst mistake was not stopping my late husband when, on learning his cancer was terminal , he decided to make our half acre garden "safe" for me by planting ten, yes ten, Yucca gloriosa plants all over the garden, near the paths. That was 24 years ago. I have had various attempts to keep them from spiking visitors with the family's help ever since. They flower to about 16feet twice a year, June ans at Xmas but the spikes are lethal. The thought was lovely as we live in the middle of a huge housing estate but the work the thought has caused has been tremendous. i should have said NO.
