Even though this plant is called Red Yucca, Red Hesperaloe, or Hesperaloe parviflora, it’s not really a yucca and certainly not yucky. It’s as attractive as yuccas, though. This one is in our backyard. From what I’ve read, they attract hummingbirds, so I’ll have to keep my eyes open and my camera ready.

    I love gardens that are planted to attract and sustain the local wildlife!

    i’m sure they will find this lovely plant

  3. Maybe this is the one I’ve heard called Spanish Needles? Very pretty, and I bet hummers do like it. If I had to move to another ecosystem with all new plants like that, the obsession to learn all of their names would consume me, but then there’d be a host of new pigments to learn about too, lol, so I’d be doomed for likely the rest of my life. But not a bad way to spend a life, I’d think.

  4. It’s pretty! I’ll have to look at the nursery when it’s open again for one to put in the back! I hope it attracts the Hummers!

  5. Not yucky at all (and neither is yucca!) Too bad you can’t eat it though. I’m all for edible ornamental.

  6. That is so pretty Janet!

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
