Red Yucca is a dramatic, architectural plant that looks somewhere between a grass and a yucca plant. It has narrow leaves growing 3 to 4 feet tall, topped with branching flower spikes that can reach 6 feet tall. The upper stems are covered with many tubular flowers, colored bright red and pink, which open for months and months. In hot areas the plant will be in flower for 6 months of the year at least. Although it looks like a tropical plant, it is actually hardy right down to minus 20, meaning it will grow all through zone 5, as well as of course right into the hottest and driest parts of zone 10. This native plant comes from the deserts of Texas, so it thrives in well-drained soils, in the hottest and sunniest part of your garden. Use it to create that south-western garden feel, or of course grow it if you live in that part of the country, or in any areas with long, hot, dry summers.

  • Bold clump of tall, narrow leaves
  • Bright red and pink flowers on tall, branching stems
  • Super drought resistant for the driest gardens
  • Easily grown in poor, dry soil
  • Hardy right down to minus 20 degrees

Red Yucca should be planted in the sunniest part of your garden, in well-drained soil. Plant it on a slope, to ensure good drainage. It will grow well in poor soil, and in polluted urban conditions. The foliage is not eaten by deer, and it has no significant pests or diseases. Water regularly for the first growing season, and after that – forget it. This truly is a plant that needs no water, even in extended periods of drought. For a xeric garden, this is a must-have plant for every climate zone.
