Care Information

A beautiful 'soft' leafed yucca that blooms reliably early summer and fall. Unfortunately, weeping yucca is highly susceptible to snout weevils. By the time you notice damage, it's usually too late. If the nursery stock does not look vigorous and healthy, you may want to avoid it. If you lose a yucca to snout weevils, treat the hole with a pesticide to target remaining weevils and their grubs. We have had some instances where the yucca eventually regenerates from roots remaining in the soil.
