Hesperaloe parviflora

Item 4040


There are very few rules in gardening, but perhaps the most important one is to work within your zone. Choosing plants that grow and thrive in your particular climate is the very first step toward having a beautiful garden. Learn more >

USDA Zone:
This plant will grow in my zone:

Tall spikes hold deep rose-pink flowers atop clumps of slender, green, drought tolerant foliage. Blooms nearly year-round in warm winter regions. An effective choice to add dramatic interest in a rock garden, as a landscape accent or in containers. Partners beautifully with other desert-like plants. Evergreen.

Customer Reviews

Just perfect
by PlantGeek, May 8, 2017

I was worried about spending so much money ($1750) on plants that I wouldn't see until they were delivered. What I got was 35 plants that were spectacularly beautiful and, this really surprised me, full of flower stalks. I bought them through the online program and picked them up at the participating nursery, where the staff could not have been nicer (or more excited that I'd chosen and gotten such fantastic plants).

I bought these plants for several reasons - their requirements suited my location, their ultimate size would not block my windows, they're evergreen and xeric, they flower and those flowers attract hummingbirds. Within 5 days of planting them I saw the first hummingbird come to the flowers and have had hummers visit them every day since.

I take responsibility for choosing the perfect plant for my purpose. I thank Monrovia for the amazingly beautiful plants they provided and the convenience of their online ordering program. I will do this again when I get to doing other parts of my landscape.

nice plant

The yucca is sending up 4 and 5 stalks for flowers. Am looking forward to the bloom. Very healthy.

Superior Product
by Troy, June 9, 2015

The plants I received are overall a superior product. Worth every penny, and worth the wait.
