Yucca filamentosa Color Guard

Yucca

Yuccas can be found over much of North America, and the architectural assertiveness of their strong, swordlike blades is prized by gardeners. Each year, stout leafless stems bear large clusters of waxy, alabaster-colored floral pendants. Needing little or no maintenance and thriving best in well drained soil, these toughs will not complain where summers are hot or humid, or long and dry. Zone 5/6

Yucca filamentosa ‘Color Guard’ full sun

Touted as one of the most attractive variegated Yuccas available, this Japanese cultivar's stiff spiky foliage comprises a mesmerizing close set, evergreen rosette. Achieving an added luster when long, curly white margin fibers seem to capture the moonlight, each spine-tipped leaf is etched by celadon green margins and a bold, creamy gold central stripe, which becomes brighter in mid summer. 'Color Guard's imposing silhouette can stand alone, be juxtaposed with Plectranthus 'Longwood Silver's soft felted foliage or be planted en masse.

Blooms June–July.

Size: 3'–6' high x 3'–4' wide; hardy to zone 5.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
