will my yuccas survive?
I am new to this site, and new to the whole gardening hobby itself. Today, I planted my used-to-be houseplants, elephantipe yuccas into the ground outside. My grandma told me that she has had yuccas outside for years in this area and they did fine, even in the snow, though I believe they were a different variety of yucca. The leaves are a little on the yellow/brown side after having been outside for a week or so. The weather changed and we had some much cooler weather after having had upper 70's. Anyway, I was just hoping that these plants weren't meant more for indoor houseplants as opposed to being outside year round. I really love them and wanted advice on whether or not they will thrive in a 7 zone climate. I read enough to know that they are "rated" or whatever for 9-11 zone. Thanks for your input!
