Can my Yuccas get too much water? - Knowledgebase Question

We have 2 Yucca Cane trees that I love and only a few places to plant them in our new yard. My concern is they would be watered every day by the sprinklers. Could this be too much water for them or do I need a new plan altogether?

Daily watering will be too much for your yuccas. If you can only plant them in that site, you might consider making raised beds or berms so the roots can remain high and dry, or you might plant them in containers and set them in an out of the way sunny site where sprinklers can't get to them.

Good luck with your new yard!
