Bad looking yucca plant

Zone bl1 6jb | Jimormrod added on January 18, 2016 | Answered

Yucca plant is still green and healthy leaves but where the old ones have been removed, the stems have grown out of shape and don't look nice at all. The plant is 20 years old and feel bad to throw it away, but it's not pretty to look at.
