Description

Herperaloe parviflora, also known as the Humming Bird Yucca, is a genus of a perennial succulent, closely related to Yucca, although the flowers are more similar of those to Aloe. It is a native to the Chihuahua Desert, north-eastern Mexico and parts of southern Texas.

Hesperaloe parviflora has narrow, tough, elongating, linear greyish-green leaves with white thread like fibres running along their edges. From late spring to mid-summer red or yellow tubular flowers are borne on tall 3-5 ft inflorescences. Hesperaloe is evergreen, stemless and clump-forming and will, with time, form colonies to 1m plus across. Visually they are outstanding specimen plants when planted in groups or as a single speciman.
