Red yucca (Hesperaloe parviflora)
Hesperaloe parviflora is one of the little known US native gems from the Southwest that is completely adaptable to most of the moist Southeast. Hesperaloe parviflora resembles a yucca but is a little more socially acceptable (safer around kids and bending gardeners) because it was born sans spines. The thick, upright-growing, blue-green foliage makes a nice clump especially when it is topped with 40" spikes of rich salmon-pink flowers in late summer...a truly wonderful and easy-to-grow plant, especially in mass plantings. Hesperaloe parviflora has survived -22 degrees F at the Denver Botanic Garden, but will succumb in the winter at much higher temperatures if the soils are moist.
