Crimson Yucca

This selection of Hesperaloe parviflora has traffic-stopping, vivid red flowers and a compact growth habit. It grows slowly to form a two-foot clump of narrow, leathery, blue-green leaves. This tough, low maintenance plant thrives in full sun and reflected heat, and is a durable choice for streetscapes and public spaces. It also shines as a specimen container plant. The species is native to Texas and northern Mexico, and survives in a wide range of climates and soils. The flowers attract hummingbirds.
