I bought a yucca elephantipes 5 years ago and planted it outside in a sunny , wind proof place in the ground - not a pot. It has gone from 6 feet to now being 18 feet and is gorgeous. However lots of brown fronds are coming off ( usual but only about 50 at a time normally) and the place where they were on the trunks is squishy and black. Has it died? The top leaves are still green. Can I cut some the branches off where they are mushy?
