This is a red flowering subcultivar of Yucca Baccata. This will require the same care as the standard white flowering kind, which is very minimal.

Q. Will yucca regrow

Had a yucca stump for a year. No shoots showing this past summer. Removed it today, but some small Roots I can’t remove. If I plant something else in the hole, is there a chance the yucca will try to regrow?

According to the article below, yuccas will regrow from any root left in the ground. It can be very hard to remove them by hand, but pouring boiling water over the area several times will kill anything before you plant. That is, if you don't want it to come back.

Q. What To Do With A Three Stemmed Yucca Which Is 2 metres High From Top Of Pot And Hitting Conservatory Ceiling.

I think it is an elephantipes type and is over 20 years old.
Stems are approx. 1.6 metres without any leaves.

This can by remedied, usually, by pruning. Since it has three main stalks, you can start by pruning one to the height that you want it to be. A few days to a week later you can remove another. Finally, the last can be removed in a week after that.

This method will make for a faster recovery, while encouraging branching.
