Yucca ‘Color Guard’
- Sword-Like Foliage,
- Creamy White Flowers,
- Blooms Late Summer
(Adam’s Needle) Yucca ‘Color Guard’ is a tough-as-nails plant, ideal for a no-maintenance garden. The sword-like foliage radiates upward from a central crown, remaining upright all year-round, except in the heaviest snows. Yucca ‘Color Guard’ bears bright creamy-yellow leaves with green edges. During the cooler months of fall and winter, the light leaf centers take on rose overtones. From early to midsummer, spectacular sturdy flower stalks rise 3-4 feet tall from the center of the plant. The individual bell-shaped flowers are 2-3 inches long and dangle from the stems like earrings. Yucca ‘Color Guard’ is tolerant to drought and poor soil. Just plant it in the sun and watch it grow.
