The Q&A Archives: Yucca Plants

Question: I have two yucca plants in my front yard that have not bloomed since we have lived here (2 years). They recieve the full morning sun for about 5 hours. Is there anything that I can do or should be doing to help them?

Answer: Yuccas prefer full sunshine (8-10 hours per day) and well-draining soil. They like deep but infrequent soakings and bloom best if given dry, arid, desert-like conditions. Your yuccas might be happier in a spot that gives them full afternoon sunshine, in soil that's on the dry side.
