Perennials

HESPERALOE

Clumps of narrow evergreen leaves with threadlike fringe along edges give rise to tall, branching inflorescences set with many tubular flowers. Foliage clumps resemble yucca or coarse grass. Plants require little maintenance aside from removal of spent flower clusters. Established plants can get by with little summer water, but they look and bloom better with a soaking every 2 weeks or so during warm weather.

Hesperaloe parviflora

From Texas and New Mexico. Leaf clumps 3–4 ft. tall and wide produce 5-ft. stalks carrying many rose red to bright red flowers from late spring through midsummer, sometimes into early fall. Especially heat tolerant; can take full sun, even reflected heat. Excellent container plant. There is a yellow- flowered form.
