Red Yucca
Hesperaloe parviflora  'Red'

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 5a-11  Find Your Zone

Note: For our customers who live and garden North of USDA Cold Hardiness Zone 5a, where this Yucca is not reliably winter hardy, you'll be happy to know it can be grown in containers that can be brought indoors during winter and placed back outside when temperatures warm up in spring.



Special Attributes

The deep rose-pink to red tubular, vase-like flowers of Red Yucca rise high above the beautiful, elongated spike-like bluish-green foliage in summer and fall. In warmer southern regions its gorgeous flowers are often produced year round. This interesting desert-like plant loves the heat and dry weather, however will grow as far north as USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 5a.  Red Yucca is a truly dramatic architectural plant that deserves a spot in every home landscape.  




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing in a  mound 3-4 feet tall and 4-5 feet wide, the Red Yucca is ideal for use as a specimen in small spaces or containers, and in groupings or mass plantings in sunny to partly shaded larger landscape borders and home foundation plantings. Looks very nice around garden ponds or in rock gardens near boulders, and is also makes a nice solo or centerpiece in containers of 14 inches or more in diameter. A fine addition to Asian gardens Asian/Japanese Gardens, perennial gardens, rock gardens, tropical look gardens, desert-like gardens, and Xeriscape Gardens (low water needs). We like combining Yucca with other low water need plants such as junipers, barberry, abelia, ornamental grasses, and loropetalum. 

Suggested Spacing:  5-6' or more for space between plants





Cultural Preferences

Red Yucca prefers an evenly moist to somewhat dry well-drained soil in full sun or part shade. No maintenance required except to remove spent flower stalks. Exceptionally drought tolerant when established.
