Plant Features

Color Guard Yucca features long rapier-like spikes with green margins and yellowy-red centers. In late summer Color Guard bears very large, white flowers. As with most all Adam's Needle, this rakish plant works very well as a security feature under windows or around the perimeter of a yard. Long known as Spanish Bayonet or Spanish Dagger, the Yucca's deceptively beautiful and unique appearance can serve to bite the unwary, much like a guard dog but without the lawsuit or raising your insurance rates!

Looks great

It was my first time ordering plants on this website. I was looking into buying some plants from this website for a long time! Finally I did place my order. I wanted a Yucca that would be a little different from the usual ones and beautiful. The order was shipped promptly! The plants were VERY carefully packed and had been well watered before their trip! When I opened the package, they looked as if they were just bought from a local nursery! :))) very healthy and fresh! I am impressed with the efficient work the company did!

Wonderful Yucca Plants

This plant was very healthy and moist upon arrival. I love that it is evergreen and will brighten things up in the winter.

Very Healthy

I purchased two of these Yucca plants and they were a real nice size and so healthy looking. I loved the packing they came in too. I love the plants that they send!
