Red Yucca (Hesperaloe parviflora)
Red Yucca is a Southwest native with a wonderful color and texture that makes it look right at home in a wide variety of landscapes! It’s easy to see why this carefree and easy plant is such a staple in many landscapes. Hesperaloe parviflora features beautiful, deep rose-pink flowers that appear on tall spikes almost all year long – this sight can help give any area a nice tropical look that everyone will love, especially in desert, xeriscape or rock gardens. And pool owners looking for an ideal clean plant for their poolside landscape are sure to appreciate the minimal litter it produces! Beauty, low litter, easy care – you can’t go wrong with this soft, yet durable and adaptable plant!
Besides its attractive nature, Red Yucca can also tolerate a wide range of soil and water conditions, so they’re perfect for our area. It’s a tough, heat and cold tolerant plant that thrives where there’s plenty of full sun exposure. Once established, this drought tolerant plant will have low to moderate watering needs. It has a slow to moderate growth rate and really is one of the best accent plants you can find!
Some people like to remove the dead flower stalks as they form seed heads to encourage new bloom spikes. And while you don’t need to have a green thumb to grow Hesperaloe parviflora, we recommend applying our Supercharged Moon Juice, which is an ideal fertilizer for triggering growth response.
