Question by  SarahJane (114)

When should you deadhead outdoor yucca?


Answer by  rascal (187)

Outdoor yucca plants normally don't bloom very much so after the flower stem has finished and the blossoms are wilting, then cut the stem out so it doesn't continue to such nutrients from the plant. Otherwise, you can remove yellowed and torn leaves, spent blooms and ruined stems at any convenient time.

In the spring when you see the first green shoots atarting to come out on them. But remeber to cut off only the bron on the plant none of the green.

That depends. If you want to collect seeds pods, wait until they have formed and are dry but haven't broken open yet. If you're not interested in the seed pods,you can pretty much cut down the flower stalk once all the flowers have died. Leaving the stalk on just saps nutrients from the rest of the plant.

You can do that in the fall. Those are optimal conditions for this very plant to thrive in. So fall is best.

You should deadhead it as soon as all the flowers have fallen off. You do not want that seed pod to form as it will take the energy out of the plant that will be needed for the next blooming.
