(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.

  1. Margie

    When I was 9 years old I tripped and fell over one of these in Calif. Believe them when they say “tough as nails” and this plant is appropriately named.

  2. Patt T.

    Had this plant about 4 yrs., love the color of foliage but hasn’t bloomed for me yet! Remaining hopeful it will.
