Years ago I was given some small Yucca. I like them for the flowers they produce. They're getting up there in size where I think they need to be controlled (stunted?) so they don't get "too big"
The larger they are growing, the more they add to the landscaping around our house. One plant (by the metal pole) has two trunks. I would like to remove the nearest to the house, but I'm afraid it will put the plant in shock and will die. I need some advice from someone experienced with the Yucca family.
Also, the ground here is clay, mainly. When the plants were buried as starts, hole were dug 18" round and 18" or so deep. Potting soil was added. As they've all grown, the lower leaves have always gotten the brown spots. Eventually the lower leaves turn completely brown, and I eventually pull them. They're to that point they need to pulled again. Our male dogs like to water them, so I leave the dying leaves there so the boys can't pee directly on the trunks. I have a remedy for this though. I'm going to put cottage stones around them, or pieces of black plastic culvert pipe as rings.
I found a webpage How to Take Care of a Yucca
As for caring for the Yucca, I'd be very appreciative to get some guidance of a green thumb.
