Q.Can broken yucca tree be replanted?

Zone Howell, NJ | Anonymous added on November 25, 2019 | Answered

I have a yucca tree that has grown to approx. 7 feet tall. I keep it on my patio. It was always very healthy. We had a storm last week with heavy rain & wind. The top 3 foot of the tree has now bent completely over. It is still attached to the main trunk. It hasn’t snapped off. Is it possible to remove the top 3 foot section & replant it?

Yes, you can do that, but wait a little while first and see if it straightens on its own. If you choose to make a new plant, then the old stalk will sprout replacement pups. This article will help you to turn that tip into a cutting: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/foliage/yucca/propagation-of-yucca-plant.htm
