Red Yucca
Hesperaloe parviflora

Red yucca is also called Coral Yucca, Red-flowered False Yucca, Redflower False Yucca, Yellow Yucca, Hummingbird Yucca, or Samandoque. Not a yucca, this member of the Century-Plant family produces soft, yucca-like, evergreen leaves, 2-3 ft. in length, crowded on the perennial’s short, woody base. The flower stalk rises 5 ft. and bears showy, coral-colored, tubular flowers occur on arching, wand-like, pink stems. Leaves are plum-colored in winter; blue-green other times.

Red yucca is evergreen, drought-resistant, and adaptable to a variety of soils. Deer browse the foliage, while the flowers attract hummingbirds.

Red yucca prefers to be planted in full sun. Seed pods will appear along the bloom stalks late in the summer and dry out during the fall and winter. Spent bloom stalks can be cut back over the winter.
