(aka: Yucca filamentosa 'Color Guard'). Yucca 'Color Guard' is a fabulous selection of our Southeast US native Yucca flaccida that was brought into the US from Japan by the late hosta guru Paul Aden. Yucca 'Color Guard' is without question the most stunning gold-centered variegated Yucca flaccida selection on the market. The growth habit of Yucca 'Color Guard' 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!
