Question: 209-1416
How do I get rid of Yucca?. It is all over my property. Karen, Townsend, MA

Mort's Answer:
Yucca filamentosa and the larger Y. aliofolia can be invasive. Those beautiful creamy white flowers with that sweet soap scent broadcast their seeds far and wide. There is a systemic herbicide called Vine-X that is applied with a brush from a canister. It can be found on the internet. Sometimes called Spanish Bayonet, it can give you a battle.
