Hesperaloe parviflora Brakelights * Brakelights Red Yucca

Hesperaloe parviflora Brakelights is an easy plant in the garden. The Brakelights Red Yucca requires little water and minimal trimming. Hesperaloe parviflora Brakelights has stalks of red flowers Spring through Fall. The variety Brakelights has a darker red with less of an orange tint than the species and mixes well with more colors. Hesperaloe Brakelights is also a little smaller and slower growing than the species. The stalks of red flowers are a hummingbird favorite. If even a small bit of root is left Red Yucca will recover from a bout with gophers. I pull out or trim off the spent bloom spikes and periodically remove a dead leaf or two. The Brakelights Red Yucca can tolerate heavy soils if irrigation is limited or the slope is adequate for drainage. Hesperaloe parviflora Brakelights is tolerant of temperatures that dip into the low teens and will recover from its underground parts when conditions get worse.
