Yucca 'Color Guard' Plants

Yucca, unfortunately pronounced like it is nasty, but this bold perennial is a neat addition the garden border and never disgusting at all.  'Color Guard' has intense yellow centers with green leaf margins on a succulent plant that makes a true statement in the garden border.  During the cold periods of the year the yellow centers turn a beautiful coral shade.  In late summer large creamy white flowers are borne on strong flowering stalks in massive panicles.  This long lived perennial is drought tolerant and slow growing.  A great centerpiece in a circular garden, mid-ground planting or mixed border with other colors or textures.  Attracts butterflies and the occasional hummingbird.
