Hesperaloe X ‘Perfu’ ‘Pink Parade’ (Pink Parade)

Hesperaloe X 'Perfu' 'Pink Parade'
Pink Parade, PP# 21728

For over a decade Ron Gass has been breeding Hesperaloe species, searching for clones to fill landscape niches. Pink Parade is his latest introduction, and is getting rave reviews from landscape designers for the architectural form of its flower spikes and foliage. A hybrid between Hesperaloe funifera and Hesperaloe parviflora, this plant is as durable and bullet-proof as both parents. The leaves are bright green, about an inch wide, and form an upright clump to 3-4 feet tall and wide. The 8-foot-tall flower spikes remain very straight, forming a linear pink line when planted in rows. Pink Parade is perfect for right-of-way plantings and any sunny, hot, reflected heat location. Flowering seasons may vary by region, but in Phoenix flowering begins in late spring. The tubular flowers attract hummingbirds.
