About Hesperaloe parviflora (Red Yucca)
This broadleaf evergreen succulent is known as Hesperaloe parviflora. Its stemless flower stalks are accompanied by blue-green grass-like foliage reaching an average landscape size of 3-4′ tall by 4-5′ wide. Its foliage that turns shades of periwinkle during the colder months has deep margins that fray at the ends. At the top of each arching stalk, clusters of rose-red colored flowers reach up to 5 feet in length. Both winter hardy to 0 degrees Fahrenheit and drought resistant, Hesperaloe parviflora, or Red Yucca, is a low maintenance landscape variety.
Planting and care instructions
Plant Red Yucca in an area that receives full to partial sun exposure. Using well-draining soil, water regularly after planting to establish a healthy root system. Once established, this variety is drought tolerant and will require watering weekly.
Landscape design ideas
Plant Red Yucca in multiples among other succulents or in containers framing a patio or entryway. This variety is a great addition to desert themed landscape designs or rock gardens.
