YUCCA COLOR GUARD

Description

. ‘Color Guard’ is a gold-centered variegated form of Yucca. A wide, rigid, sword-shaped, spine-tipped, leaves with green margins and striking creamy gold centers. Long filamentous (as per species name) curly white threads are found along the leaf margins. In late spring, a flowering stalk rises from the center typically to 5-6’ tall, with nodding, bell-shaped, fragrant, creamy white flowers. Plant height is generally 2 to 3 feet tall without flower. Grows well in Full Sun and Sandy Soil can tolerate part-shade but not poor drainage.
Yucca filamentosa, commonly called Adam’s needle, Spanish bayonet or yucca, is a virtually stemless evergreen shrub (though it looks more like a perennial than a shrub) that is native to beaches, sand dunes and fields from South Carolina south to Florida and Mississippi.
