Yucca broken branch

Zone hurtsfordshire | dennis baker added on February 14, 2012 | Answered

Got a yucca plant that's been in garden for over 10 years. It has one main trunk and three stems about one foot from the ground and has flowered on all branches. Now one of the branches has fallen down and snapped, hanging away from trunk but still connected to the plant. What can I do to save the tree and maybe save the branch and see if it will grow? I was going to wait till weather is milder or should I just cut it off?

You can go ahead and cut it off since it's just hanging there anyway. Depending on its size, you may be able to propagate the branch. Here is more information that may help with that: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/foliage/yucca/propagation-of-yucca-plant.htm
