Hesperaloe parviflora

This incredible hummingbird magnet (commonly called “Hummingbird Yucca”, though it’s not a Yucca at all!) is, in my opinion, one of the absolute best blooming succulents there is! Sending up scads of unbelievably beautiful 5’ tall pink to coral bloom stalks from Spring-Fall, these gorgeous tightly packed inflorescences of 1” tubular pink flowers atop the  arching blue-green grass-like clumps make for an architectural presence that just has to be seen to be believed. Too, too gorgeous! Prickle-free, instead it has utterly benign thin white threads at the edges of its leaves. Virtually maintenance free, drought tolerant once established, deer resistant, can handle heat, humidity, and the cold down to zone 5! All this oh-so-worthy S.W. native beauty wants is full sun (though it can take part shade, it will bloom less) low water once established and well-draining not too fertile soil.
