'Color Guard' Yucca creates a bright display in the landscape with its sword-like foliage that has a bold yellow stripe with deep green edging. In mid-summer, a spike reaching nearly 6 feet in height displays fragrant, bell shaped creamy white blooms. Grows best in full sun and reaches 2 feet in height and three feet in width. Even in colder months it maintains it's beauty and turns a nice coral pink color. It makes a nice focal point in a garden or in a planter arrangement. It is drought tolerant, rabbit and deer resistant, great for erosion control and can be planted in shallow, rocky soil (ahem...sound familiar?). This is an attention-grabbing specimen. Every time I see one driving down the road, it always catches my eye. I see them at the end of driveways a lot, which is great. If your back off the road a bit, it makes sense to plant something you don't have to drag a hose out to water!
