Spectacular bi-colored green and canary yellow foliage makes this succulent stand out year-round in the sunny garden! And that's even before the white blooms arise in summer, dangling dramatically on long, thin stems. 'Color Gaurd' is a treat your hot, thirsty garden deserves!

This long lived, rather slow growing perennial sets new leaves straight up from the center of the rosette like stem (after time, it will grow several such stems). The foliage is very fleshy and firm, but not spiky.

Over time, 'Color Guard' will reach 4 to 6 feet high and up to 5 feet wide, with several stems. In most climates the stems will grow straight upwards, but they may also take a horizontal turn and meander a bit before turning upwards. No two 'Color Guards' will be identical, which is part of their great charm!

And in mid to late summer, white bell shaped flowers will erupt from long, thick, pendulous stems in the center of the plant. Very showy, the blooms last for weeks, attracting pollinators and turning heads.

'Color Guard' is very adaptable to differing conditions and climates, but thrives best in hot, dry climates. Humidity does not seem to be a problem, but the foliage color may vary with the weather. Deer and other nibblers steer clear of this perennial, and periods of drought will not faze it. Few perennials can make such claims! You will absolutely love Blue Boy. Find a special place in a sun-soaked area of the garden for this gem.
