Yucca 'Color Guard' Plants

Yucca '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.

Fertilizer: If using compost apply an 1" at planting time and side dress annually in late fall or early spring.  If using a granular fertilizer, we recommend organic formulations, apply an all-purpose formula in early spring annually.  It is only recommended to use liquid fertilizers when the growth is slow, and this is not normally needed. 
Water:  Monitor new plants for adequate moisture.  Water in deep and allow the top to dry between applications.  Once plants are established (after about a year) only supplement water when in drought situations.
