Can Red Yucca (hesperaloe parviflora) be transplanted, and when?
(Responses from master gardeners)
• I’ve transplanted these several times (early spring with good results) this year in February; I divided two huge ones into about 15 smaller ones. Most important things are that root is long enough and you should cut top back after you plant so roots can grow.
• I have had no problems transplanting red yuccas. As long as there is a good root system, there shouldn’t be a problem. Now would be a good time to transplant (early April). Can propagate by dividing rhizomes and offsets or can be started from ripe seeds in the fall. Treat like cactus and don’t over water.
