Yucca Filamentosa 'Colour Guard' 10L
A low maintenance, exotic garden plant, 'Colour Guard' is a variegated Yucca which forms rosettes of evergreen leaves with a broad, central, pale yellow stripe. Hardy to -10C, and holder of an RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be assured that this is an all-round garden-worthy plant and a solid, reliable performer.
A superb choice for drier gardens and Mediterranean-style designs, 'Colour Guard’ is not as spiky as other Yucca varieties, so is also a much 'softer' option for your garden.
In mid to late summer, especially during hotter years, bell-shaped flowers, creamy-white flowers may be produced on 1-2m tall stems which add to the overall beauty of this award-winning, Mediterranean beauty.
More compact than other varieties, this variegated Needle Palm reaches around 150cm high so won’t outgrow a large pot or overshadow other plants.
For best results, grow the plant in a container that can be moved outside in warm summer months and then brought back inside for winter.
Container cultivation - when potting, add 20-30% of extra grit to improve drainage. Place in full light, water freely during the growing season from April to September and apply a balanced liquid feed fortnightly. During winter don’t feed, and water sparingly - allowing the surface 5cm of compost to dry out between watering. Then water thoroughly, making sure that surplus water drains through the pot.
Pruning is not normally needed, but damaged leaves and spent flower spikes can be removed as necessary in the spring.
