Lower leaves of established yuccas appear to have symptoms of anthracnose: papery/dry elongated round spots, dead leaf tips on yellowing leaves. I'm having trouble finding out if this is treatable, or is it just a function of our wetter-than-normal spring? Thanks!

if it's just the lower leaves I would be less concerned... it certainly could be the humidity/dampness, but if the newest leaves are fine, my hopes are they will survive and be OK once if finally dries up a bit
