Engelmann´s Red Yucca
A stemless, Yucca-like plant that forms clusters of rosettes of narrow, hard, blue-green leaves, from which long spikes with very attractive pink flowers rise in summer. It is similar to H. parviflora, but significantly larger in size and much less common. Native to central and southwestern Texas, it is extremely hardy to frost and a great plant for the sunny garden in temperate and subtropical areas.
