Hesperaloe parviflora ‘Yellow’ (Yellow Hesperaloe)

Hesperaloe parviflora 'Yellow'
Yellow Hesperaloe

Hesperaloe parviflora is one of the most carefree plants you’ll find, and it produces long-lasting flower spikes throughout the summer. The coral red-flowering plants have been a staple in southwestern landscapes for years, but the yellow-flowering selection is less common. The two flower colors make a stunning combination! Hesperaloe parviflora forms a three to four foot clump of stiff, leathery, grey-green leaves. The tubular flowers attract hummingbirds. This tough plant thrives in full sun, reflected heat, and even tolerates some light shade if drainage is adequate. Hesperaloe parviflora also makes a great container plant, and is a clean choice for pool areas. This native of Texas and northern Mexico tolerates temperatures to -20° F.
