Drought Tolerant Native Attracts Hummingbirds
If you're looking for a 'set it and forget it' new favorite for dry areas in your yard, consider this native. If you want a bloom factory that bring the butterflies and hummingbirds fluttering by, then the Red Yucca (Hesperaloe parviflora) is the plant for you.
This low-maintenance, broadleaved evergreen requires very little water and produces dramatic spikes of vibrant red and pink flowers all season long.
You'll love the motion of the flower spikes bobbing in the breeze. Its long, graceful green foliage creates a striking burst of green while the spikes of flowers climb to the sky during the summer months.
The Red Yucca will add drama and interest to your yard. You can plant it along the path to your door, along the driveway, or plant multiple in a row to create a hedge along your property line. When not in bloom, this beauty still appears elegant and fascinating.
This plant creates interest all year round. During the colder months, each bloom transforms into an elongated, dry seed. Chilly weather makes the evergreen leaves fade from green to a deep purple.
This water-wise favorite requires very little care after it's established. It's the perfect solution to spots in your garden that are too sunny and dry for other plants. In fact, gardeners love it because it is so easy to grow in dry areas. It does best in full and well-drained, low moisture areas. This drought-resistant plant rarely requires watering—it can survive off natural rainfall.
If you're looking for large dramatic potted plants, the Red Yucca does well in containers. You can put one on each side of your front door, on the patio, or on each corner of your pool area.
During the summer months when these red flowers are lighting up your yard, they're also attracting butterflies, other pollinator insects, and hummingbirds with their nectar. The tubular, coral-colored flowers are perfect for hummingbirds to hover under for a snack.
This sturdy, yet elegant offering is sure to enhance any garden or yard. And it grows well without much maintenance. Order several today to help your driest areas shine!
