Yucca filamentosa 'Color Guard'

Adam's Needle
We fell in love with this Yucca after observing how much it provides dramatic winter interest! . This superior clone has creamy yellow centered sword-shaped leaves edged in deep green all year round. Its winter color becomes even more exciting when the cream coloring takes on warm coral tones. As a bonus every few years a 4' spike of creamy white fragrant lily blossoms in early summer. Clumps of foliage grow 2' tall and freely produce offsets which can be separated for more plants. Beloved by butterflies and hummingbirds too!
