Native to Central American and the southern states of the U.S.
Yuccas thrive in hot, arid conditions.
In bright sunshine and hot temperatures, a yucca may need watering weekly (if there is no rain). In colder weather, less often—maybe as infrequently as every other month. But always let soil moisture be your guide before watering your plant. If the plant is outdoors at all times and has access to rainfall, you may never need to water it.
