Hesperaloe parviflora - Red Yucca

Hesperaloe parviflora is an easy plant in the garden. The Red Yucca requires little water and minimal trimming. Hesperaloe parviflora has stalks of red flowers Spring through Fall. 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 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 and often reseeds on its own, though not agressively.
