This Yellow flower false yucca has proven to be the perfect choice for my garden’s focal point. According to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, its bloom time in Texas is March through July. Meaning I shouldn’t expect any more flower spikes this year. That’s okay. I’m just glad I haven’t accidentally killed the plant.
Yellow flower false yucca (Hesperaloe parviflora). Although the red version is more commonly found in Texas’s xeriscape landscapes, I chose the smaller yellow version for the ornamental container used as my sun garden’s focal point. The false yucca is native to the Chihuahuan desert of west Texas and with its low maintenance qualities I’m depending on it to survive our climate extremes.
