If you pay any attention to medians and public spaces in Tucson, then you’re already very familiar with red yucca. In fact, there’s a good chance that it can be found in at least one of your neighbor’s yards as well! There are many good reasons why this botanical workhorse has been one of the most popular landscape plants in the Southwest for years. Red yucca is extremely tough, clean, and easy to care for. It also has a long and active blooming season, attracting lots of hummingbirds and butterflies with its pink to red blooms that appear on spikes up to 10 feet tall from spring through fall. This plant will tolerate high heat and low chills, and the rigid gray-green leaves are docile enough to locate near walkways and patios.
