yucca filamentosa 'Color Guard'

Plant Type: Perennials

Tough as nails, yuccas are the ideal plant for a no-maintenance garden.  Their sword-like foliage radiates upward from a central crown, remaining upright all year round except in the heaviest snows.  It combines nicely with all kinds of mounded foliage plants.  '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 creamy white flowers are 2-3 inches long and dangle from the stems like earrings.
