The Q&A Archives: Companion Planting Yucca

Question: I want to plant several yucca plants in my garden this summer. How long will it take for the average mail-order yucca plant to obtain a reasonable size and bloom? Also, can I use pampas grass as companion plantings with the yucca? E. Ross Louisville, KY

Answer: If you buy good sized plants, yuccas should bloom the first year. You may even consider checking local garden center or nursery for their plants. If the plants are small and set back for various reasons, then they'll bloom the second year. Pampas grass can get huge, so use it with caution when interplanting with yuccas. You don't want to shade your yuccas with this tall ornamental grass.
