Color Guard Yucca

Striking bicolor, swordlike foliage that's green and gold fill out drab spots in borders and beds, staying attractive in spring, summer and fall. Masses of fragrant creamy white flowers on 2-3' stalks bloom in summer, and brown seed pods will provide fall interest. Useful for adding color in spots that are a bit too sunny for most. Color Guard Yucca ships established in its own 1 gallon pot. Yucca filamentosa 'Color Guard'
