A Bit More

An eye-catching architectural accent growing 3’ tall by 3’ wide, Yucca filamentosa ‘Color Guard’ has wide, sword-like leaves. Each sturdy leaf in the cluster has a bold, yellow stripe with green margins. Also known as Spanish bayonet and needle palm, this shrub is native to coastal sand dunes and beaches through the Southeastern U.S. And all the references to swords and needles are for good reason. Yucca leaves are stiff and sharp, and the tips can cause injury. A possible danger to children and pets, site plants well away from paths and pedestrian traffic. Drought tolerant, ‘Color Guard’ is adaptable in the garden and can take regular water. Plant in full sun.
