WE asked readers to identify Olive Stephenson's mystery tropical plant and you did not disappoint.

Dozens of you have been in touch to say that it is a Yucca and have kindly provided us with snaps of your own plants which are thriving in the recent hot weather.

We reported that Mrs Stevenson, of Field View, off Burton Stone Lane, was given some bulbs ten years ago by a man who helped her tidy up the garden in her new home, and now it's 15ft tall.

The plant has grown steadily over the past ten years and currently has new shoots appearing at the bottom. It last flowered two years ago.

Olive said: "It's bigger than my shed. I don't know what it is, but I've love to know."
