I purchased a 6" baby bare root from an internet nursery and planted it last June. We had a wet year and it grew another 3 ". Last winter was relatively warm for zone 3b at -29 C with good snow cover. The yucca sustained no damage other than to have some of it's leaves flattened by the snow cover.

I would like to add a note to happenstance,they are indeed sturdy in a zone 5,I live in the okanagan valley of British Columbia ,where this past winter we had lows of -25 celsius.
I have approx 15 yucca's and have not lost one ,they are quite common on the area,and well loved for their blooms.

Soft flexible leaves, that tend to droop down rather than stiffly upright like many other Yuccas. Great variegated color, w/bright chartreuse yellow coloring

Sometimes tough to get started, they require extra water until established.
