Clipping the lower leaves on Sammy, our tallest Yucca Rostrata, is a job I do not enjoy but I finally tackled. I think I managed to avoid doing it last year, so once I got in there I was surprised at the thick coat of brown leaves hugging the trunk. Here's the before...
And an after. It's always surprising when another foot or two of trunk is revealed.
Once the growing season gets underway the older leaves will be pushed downward and hide the upper trunk once again, but for now Sammy stands tall.
