Truly stunning! ‘Color Guard’ has stiff green sword-like leaves with a wide bright yellow center, and we mean bright! Our trial crops were gorgeous close up or at a distance, where visitors would gravitate to that brightest sunny yellow blast of color. Add a compact and dwarf habit at 2-3', superb drought-tolerance, deer resistance, an evergreen quality, and a preference for plain sandy soil, and ‘Color Guard’ becomes irresistible. The white flowers in July-August on strong stems are a delightful after-thought.
