Calling all hummingbirds! Hesperaloe parviflora is popular with gardeners and hummingbirds for its striking, long-lasting, tall, rosy-pink flowers.
This low-maintenance, sun-loving, drought-tolerant plant is beautiful and resilient.
Rosy Pink False Yucca is a succulent that forms clumps of arching, stiff, spineless, gray-green foliage with curly threads of white fibers that appear on the margins of the deeply grooved, narrow leaves. The 3 ft. tall, upright clumps slowly spread to 4 ft. wide. From a distance, Hesperaloe parviflora may look like an ornamental grass, a yucca, or aloe, but when the 5 ft. tall spikes of coral-pink tubular flowers appear in late spring, it looks like no other.
Commonly called Texas Red Yucca, Coral Yucca, Redflower False Yucca, or Hummingbird Yucca, Hesperaloe parviflora is a tough, southwest native that is winter hardy to -20℉ and thrives in full sun and reflected heat. Tolerant of humidity and drought, this evergreen plant performs well in containers, xeriscapes, desert gardens, rock gardens, succulent gardens, or mixed beds with other low water perennials. False Yucca is useful in a pollinator-friendly garden where the tightly packed, tubular rosy-pink flowers will attract hummingbirds, butterflies, and other pollinators.
Hesperaloe parviflora is an exceptional frost tolerant, heat tolerant, drought tolerant choice for almost any landscape and will perform as well on the coast as it does inland. Easy to grow, Rosy Pink False Yucca is virtually maintenance free and the ideal choice for all gardeners. Want to attract attention to your waterwise garden this year?
