Hesperaloe campanulata ‘MSWNNuevo Leon™’

Hesperaloe campanulata 'MSWNNuevo Leon™'
'Nuevo Leon™', P.P. #32069, Lionheart®

Lionheart® is a selection of Hesperaloe campanulata that was chosen from our breeding program for its sturdy, upright flower spike to 10 feet and extended flower show. Blooms will begin mid-spring as with most other Hesperaloes, but can last all summer long even in the hottest climates. Individual blossoms have deep pink buds that open up to a nice iridescent white center. The leaves are very similar to that of Hesperaloe funifera, but smaller in scale and not so coarse. However it is a smaller species, growing to only 3 to 4 feet tall and wide. Plant Lionheart® in full sun and well drained soil. Plants will also tolerate reflected heat or partial shade. Native to Nuevo Leon, Mexico, this plant is hardy to at least 0°F. This plant requires very little maintenance.
