Brakelights® Red Yucca

Hesperaloe parviflora 'Perpa' PP #21,729

SKU
06418
Vibrant, brake light-red blooms are a great color improvement to this species! This compact newer selection rarely sets seedpods, meaning more prolific flowering over an exceptionally long season. Use in mass plantings for a dramatic effect in xeriscape and waterwise gardens. Good container specimen. Evergreen.
