Can someone help me I have a Yucca I think its a recurvafolia, it grew to big for pots so about four years ago I put it in the ground its obviously flourished, this year it produced a huge red spike which turned into lovely cream coloured flowers it ended up about 7feet high.
Unfortunately the flowers are now dying off, the problem is when all the flowers have died do I have to cut the spike off or do I leave it to fade naturally I think I could have difficulty cutting it its about 5 inches round. Really need help don't want to kill my plant by doing or not doing the right thing.
