Pruning a Yucca Plant Stalk

Anonymous added on June 2, 2011 | Answered

New to the desert, we planted plants that we hoped would be hardy in this high desert climate. We were fortunate in the choice of a yucca plant. We were not told that it would flower. The second year, a stalk started growing up from the center with pods on it. A few weeks later these pods became a bell-like white flower. Beautiful. But now the flowers have fallen off and the stalk is dry and bare. Do we just let the stalk remain, or should be cut it off? I have seen them both ways and don't know what is proper.
