Amazing, variegated yucca, clumping to 3', with gold-centered green leaves, the gold brightening in summer's light. And, true to the species name, the foliage is dressed up with curly white filaments. White flowers in spring on 6' stalks. Sun, well-drained soil, and occasional deep summer water. Frost hardy in USDA zone 5.

Tantalizing tufts of yellow centered foliage make a great addition to the garden. Awesome coral winter color along the stripes. Growth is superior to other clones of Yucca filamentosa. Creamy white, fragrant flowers on large spikes.

The stiff succulent sword-like 1-3' leaves of this near-native hedgehog are centered with gold in summer, edged with coral in winter, and topped by 6-10' spires of white flowers in summer; valuable for the xeriscape. SUN/Dry/GdDrain

Variegated swordlike leaves of creamy yellow with green edges. In fall and winter, the foliage takes on pink tones. Towering clusters of white flowers steal the show in mid- to late summer. A first-rate four-season plant.
