red yucca, Hesperaloe parviflora

Red or hummingbird yucca seems to be a point of pride for Texans. They have brought it from their wilds into many of their gardens, then shared it with others. These plants are popular now in dry gardens throughout the southwest. the plants are less prickly and a little smaller than stemless yuccas. In the wild these grow in Texas and adjacent Mexico. Harris Co TX, 4/16/22. Agave family, Agavaceae.
