Hesperaloe parviflora - Red Yucca
Hesperaloe parviflora is an easy plant in the garden. It requires little water, minimal trimming and blooms Spring through Summer. I pull out or trim off the spent bloom spikes and periodically remove a dead leaf or two. The Red Yucca can tolerate heavy soils if irrigation is limited or the slope is adequate for drainage. Hesperaloe parviflora is tolerant of temperatures that dip into the low teens. The Red Yucca can be propagated from seed or from divisions.
