Color Guard Yucca

Description
Swordlike, green and gold upright leaves fill out drab spots in borders and beds, and stay attractive in spring, summer and fall. In the summer, Color Guard produces masses of fragrant, creamy white flowers on 2-3' stalks. If stalks are left alone, brown seed pods will provide fall interest. Useful for filling 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'
