My yucca (common) transplanted to Atlanta from my parents' home in Panama City Beach is having its first flower. (Picture uploaded.) Questions: Should I cut the flower stalk to bring inside to enjoy, or will it last longer if I leave it outside? Is there any greater benefit to the future of the plant depending on my decision? For example, is it any more or less likely to bloom next year if I bring in the flower stalk this year? Thanks.

Creamy lemon margins on this variety. Flower buds are pale yellow, open cream and then turn pure white. Plant stays low, just over 15" tall, with a flower stalk about 15" higher. Carefree plant for areas with good drainage and full sun.
