The Color Guard Yucca (Yucca filamentosa 'Color Guard') is a unique, evergreen perennial known for its striking, variegated foliage and dramatic flower spikes. This drought-tolerant plant is an excellent choice for low-maintenance gardens or xeriscapes, providing year-round interest and architectural appeal.
The Color Guard Yucca is a hardy perennial that grows to a height of 3-4 feet, with a spread of 4 feet. It is well-suited for USDA hardiness zones 4-10, making it adaptable to a wide range of climates. The plant features a clump-forming growth habit, with rosettes of sword-shaped leaves that create a striking, architectural appearance. It is low-maintenance, requiring minimal care and is resistant to pests and diseases. The Color Guard Yucca thrives in well-drained soil and full sun, making it an ideal choice for rock gardens, borders, or as a focal point in the landscape.
The foliage of the Color Guard Yucca is undoubtedly its most striking feature. The long, sword-shaped leaves are rigid and slightly arching, displaying a bold variegation of bright yellow centers with green margins. This vibrant foliage provides a stunning contrast to other plants in the landscape, and the color remains vibrant throughout the year, even in the winter months. The leaves are also adorned with curly, white filaments along their edges, giving the plant its species name, filamentosa.
During the summer months, the Color Guard Yucca produces dramatic, towering flower spikes that can reach up to 6 feet in height. These spikes are covered in creamy white, bell-shaped flowers, creating a stunning display that attracts pollinators such as bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. The flowers are also fragrant, adding an additional layer of sensory appeal to your garden. Once the blooming season is over, the flower stalks can be removed to maintain the plant's neat appearance.
