Color Guard Yucca = spiky sunshine

I wanted a little something to add color and structure to my mass planting of native bamboo muhly (Muhlenbergia dumosa) I planted a couple’ish months ago in the side yard.

Here is the bamboo muhly then….looking good…but needing a little something…

And here it is now intermingling with a mass planting of Yucca filamentosaColor Guard‘!  I am also going to add my absolute favorite, and CRAZY adaptable, sedum to border out this entire path – ‘Angelina’ Sedum rupestre.  I think it will take this bed to a whole other level as the colors will work great in all seasons.  I think (hope it happens at the same time) it will rock out this bed in cooler temperatures when the yucca gets its tinges of pink and the ‘Angelina’ sedum gets its orangy/red/pink thing going on like it does in the colder weather.

Talk about brightening up a side yard.  I am loving all this chartreusey goodness – there is something magical about yellow and green together, don’t ‘cha think?When I look at the yuccas, they look like spiky sunshines the way they hold the light – pretty cool plant!  I have a new love….HEEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeee!
