Yucca Filamentosa ‘Color Guard’
This fabulous yucca selection was brought into the US from Japan by hosta guru Paul Aden. This is the best gold-centered variegated yucca on the market. The growth habit is similar to Yucca ‘Golden Sword’, except that the center coloration brightens to a creamy-gold in midsummer, when others begin to fade. The deer-resistant foliage is also covered in hundreds of curly white hairs, which can be shaved off if the lack of grooming bothers you. Dan Hinkley, founder of Heronswood, rates this among his Top 10 most indispensable plants! Each 3′ wide clump is topped with 6′ stalks of white, hummingbird-attracting flowers in spring…AWESOME!
