Product Information

An absolutely spectacular addition to your garden!

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, creamy-white flowers are produced on 1-2m tall stems which add to the overall beauty of this award-winning, Mediterranean gem.

More compact than other varieties, this variegated Needle Palm reaches around 150cm high so won’t outgrow a large pot or overshadow other plants.

Supplied as an established plant in a 10L pot, ready to plant out or pot on.

Top Tips

For best results, grow the plant in a container that can be moved outside in warm summer months and then given winter protection against the worst of the weather.

Care Information

  • If growing in a container, add 20-30% of extra grit for good 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.
