Last year was the first time my yucca plants grew stalks that produced beautiful white flowers. The stalks have survived the winter and i see others around that also have the stalks. What do i have to do to them?

Although the stalk will eventually collapse on its own, the best approach is to cut it down now so your yucca looks neat and attractive. Cut the stalk below foliage level so you won't see an obvious stump unless you walk up to the plant and look down into the center. Enjoy your garden!
