Yucca Flowering in WI

Posted by semesterke 5 (My Page) on

I have several yucca plants located around the back yard which gets mid-day and afternoon sun. I have had some for over three years but none have ever produced a flower spike much less flowers. Around town I see many yucca's that have spikes and even a few have flowered. What is going on? How old does the plant have to be to flower here in WI? Should I be doing something I am not? I water weekly if there is no rain and use fertilizers twice a year. Soil is sandy with compose added.

RE: Yucca Flowering in WI

My guess would be to be meaner to it. These are drought tolerant if not drought loving plants. I'm seeing yuccas blooming right now in totally ignored landscapes. Personally I would stop the fertilizer and watering unless it doesn't rain for about a month or two.
