Yucca Plants

Yucca and Frost

Anonymous added on March 14, 2011 | Answered

After such a severe winter, most of the yucca plantsĀ I have seen have what looks like leaf droop, including the one in my own garden. The top has gone to ''mush''. Is there any chance of it coming back, or should I simply dig it out and replace? There is no new growth from the base.

If the stems are still alive, they will regrow their leaves and there is also a chance the roots are alive and they will regrow from the roots. I would give them a month, and if you do not see growth by then, they are most likely dead. These articles will help you as well:
