Hesperaloe parviflora-False Red Yucca

Propagating False Red Yucca is a cinch, but be aware, like yucca this plant can bite not with spikes but with irritation to the skin and certain parts are poisonous so wear gloves when you are splitting the rhizomes apart and replanting. It is a native to the Southwest so it can take dry weather and hardy in Zones 6-9 and if protected in 5. It is an evergreen, honeybees and butterflies like the nectar, blooms mid summer and are red and the plant will reach a height of 3'-4'
