Question Of The Week!

October 7, 2017

Q: How does one take care of a yucca? Do we trim/get rid of dead leaves? How much water does it need?

A: Prune your yucca plant in the spring for dead, hanging leaves. Cut flower stalks down to the ground after flowers have stopped blooming and have started to die. This can be done without harm to the plant at any time of year. You do not need to water a yucca unless a hot dry spell occurs. If it is a newly planted yucca, you should water it every two to three weeks during the first growing season only.


If you want the yucca look, but don't what the hard spikes of the yucca, you could substitute the yucca with Hesperaloe parvilflora (red yucca) or Nolina (Bear grass) - both have a softer spike and also give a great bloom.
