    Hello I've had this plant growing in my mums garden now for a good few years and never thought anything about it until the last few days because it flowered for the first time :)

    Any ideas of the species please.

    It's a yucca - seems to be yucca filamentosa, Jason

    I think they take a few years to get establish before they flower like that one, plus in a position that suits them.

    Yes, it is a proud exemplar - Unfortunately the motherplant dies after flowering Jason,
    but before they get a lot of layers.

    I have them since years in pots, too - no problem, even in winter.
    They like it dry but they grow bigger and flower better in the garden ground.
    At least if you forget to water them in the pots always, like I do... :whistle:
