Featured plants for August 2020:
- Yucca Color-Guard

Commonly known as Adam’s Needle, Yucca ‘Color Guard‘ bears bright creamy-yellow leaves with green edges. During the cooler months of fall and winter, the light leaf centers take on rose overtones. Plant in full sun to part shade, four to six hours of sun each day is optimal. Soil should be well drained. It is tolerant of all soil types and all soil pH levels. The Color Guard Yucca has average to low water needs.
Horsetail Reed, Equisetum hyemale, is a very desirable and versatile plant. It has unique tubular jointed stems. A true vertical evergreen. Makes a great background plant for your pond’s edge. Horsetail grows only 3 feet high. Caring for horsetail is easy once planted. Soil should remain wet at all times. If you are growing in a container, keep an eye on moisture levels and water accordingly. Keep old stems pruned for best performance.
Monstera Deliciosa, Nicknamed the “swiss cheese plant”, is famous for its quirky natural leaf holes. A vibrant green beauty, it can give any interior space instant jungle vibes, and only gets better with time. Thrives in bright to medium indirect light. Not usually suited for direct sun but can be acclimated to withstand it. Water every 1-2 weeks, allowing soil to dry out between waterings. Increase frequency with increased light.
