I recently moved into a new home and there was a beautiful plant that had white flowers this spring. A neighbor told me it is a yucca plant. I was wondering if it can be divided since it is quite large and I would love to have a couple more in my yard. Thanks, Mary Ann

You can propagate a mature yucca. The best time to do this is in the spring. Separate off the small suckers or offsets that have formed around the outer edge of the main plant. You may find a sturdy fork helpful in teasing apart these small clumps or you may need to cut them off with a sharp knife. Make sure each new clump has some healthy roots attached. Then plant these new sections and keep them watered until they become established.
