Yucca plants are hardy perennials that grow well in U.S. Department of Agriculture zones three through 10. While they can be planted as single plants, they can also grow from seeds in the spring, according to GardenersHQ.
Yucca plants take one month to one year to germinate. Seedlings can also be grown indoors for two years, then transplanted in the spring. They need full sunlight and good drainage. They are hardy enough to survive poor soils and do not need much moisture. Soil pH for yucca plants is best between 5.5 and 7.5. Because yucca leaves are extremely sharp, gardeners should always wear heavy gloves when working with them.
