Too many yuccas

Some years ago a friend gave me two plants which she said were yuccas. On researching yuccas I can’t find a picture that looks quite like mine so now I’m not sure about the name. They have survived very well so they must be hardy as I’ve been able to kill most plants in my garden. They are a succulent although the very point of each leaf is very sharp. They have thrived where they are but now they’ve both had babies and quite a few of them. One day soon I’ll remove these youngsters and offer them for free on our local buy and sell Facebook page. Do you have succulents in your garden?

No. I have lots of aloe vera and mother-in-law's tongue.

They are so expensive for me to buy, but I love them. How nice they multiplied, and now you can share.

Succulents are common here in Southern California because they are hardy for a desert climate.

We were always taught at school that Western Australia had a similar climate to California. I don't know if it was north or south though.

It's not quite as fleshy as a aloe vera.

The only thing that might be considered a succulent in my garden would be "hen and chicks". I'm not fond of the plant....it seems to grow without my attention. At least the spot where it's growing is out of my regular line of vision. Your plant looks quite healthy.

It does but it's getting bigger and bigger. I might cut out the top one and start again with just one of the lower ones.

No succulents in my garden and I seem to be slowly killing off the hostas that a former resident planted all over the place.

Seem to be? So I gather that it isn't intentional?

@JudyEv I'm not deliberately trying to kill them, but between my husband trampling them as he works on the deck and my otherwise neglecting them there are definitely fewer than there were .

We don't get too many weeds as the soil is very gravelly and Vince sprays any weeds that do pop up. Do you like gardening or are you more like me?

@JudyEv i used to love gardening until the pesky stray cats keep pooping and peeing onto my veggies, I had to transfer them to flower pots . Now my garden kept growing weeds.

I have this 'problem' with the ficus palms here. They just multiply although they are pretty plants. And then there are those sansevieria - they multiply too.Then there is aloe vera and several other creepers that just proliferate(lol)

Aloe vera is a succulents. Succulents are like cacti but don't have the terrible prickles. They might have a few sharp points but not like cacti.

I don't but I have considered putting them in at the Florida house since they are more suitable to the climate there.

I had a yucca years ago, but it spread so I started to give them away. But I replaced them with a succulent that my neighbour gave to me, and it spread even more. I kept a few when we moved, but I haven't planted them in the ground as of yet, they remain in pots, we'll see if I plant them, they are so much work thinning them out every year.

It might be best to keep them in pots Some things really get busy with spreading.
