Hesperaloe parviflora is one of the little known US native gems from the Southwest that is completely adaptable to most of the moist Southeast. Hesperaloe parviflora resembles a yucca but is a little more socially acceptable (safer around kids and bending gardeners) because it was born sans spines. The thick, upright-growing, blue-green foliage makes a nice clump especially when it is topped with 40" spikes of rich salmon-pink flowers in late summer...a truly wonderful and easy-to-grow plant, especially in mass plantings. Hesperaloe parviflora has survived -22 degrees F at the Denver Botanic Garden, but will succumb in the winter at much higher temperatures if the soils are moist.
