Yuccas are an excellent choice for your home garden. They are very low maintenance and enhance a southwestern landscape themed yard. They are a very hardy perennial, and do well without much water or special attention. They bloom from mid summer to fall. An interesting tidbit on Yuccas is that they have a mutualistic relationship with the Yucca moth, which both pollinates the Yucca and lays its eggs in the flower.
Proper care for Yuccas should include ensuring they are planted in an area with full sun, and not overwatering, as this can cause the roots to rot. Yuccas do not handle transplanting well. A once per year fertilization is all that is needed. Regular pruning is necessary.
