Hesperaloe parviflora, Red yucca, Plant Select
This graceful native of Texas and Mexico has arching, evergreen grass-like leaves with captivating curly white filaments. Tall spikes of brilliant coral-pink, yellow-throated tubular blossoms curve skyward with elegance and are an instant magnet for hummingbirds from early summer to autumn. Red yucca is virtually maintenance-free and perfectly xeric once established. Read more here.

Tips from the pros: Not well suited to areas that are frequently irrigated, in poorly drained soils, and in soils highly amended with organic materials. Use rock mulch if possible. Prune brown foliage and seedheads in spring to keep tidy looking. Provide additional moisture in mid-summer for best performance.
