(aka: Hesperaloe funifera ssp. chiangii) We are pleased to share the very rare, and only recently recognized as a new species (2002), Hesperaloe chiangii. Formerly considered a subspecies of Hesperaloe funifera, Hesperaloe chiangii forms large 6' wide colonies alongside Agave asperrima and Yucca australis in open areas at 5,000' elevation in San Luis Potosi, Mexico. The 4.5' long upright, rigid leaves are home to 8' tall flower stalks of hummingbird-designed coral flowers in late spring. This is a very rare one time offering, so don't miss the chance to add this new red yucca to your collection. As with all hesperaloes, dry, well-drained soils are the key to success.
