False yucca (Hesperaloe parviflora), also known as red yucca, is a succulent flowering plant in the agave family. False yucca is a North American native plant, with the Texas desert as its home. Used extensively in xeriscaping in Arizona and Nevada, the false yucca blooms from late spring to mid-summer in red to coral-colored waxy flowers atop a 5-foot stalk. If you are looking for hummingbird attractors in your garden, plant the false yucca and sit back and watch the show.
Choose a planting location for the false yucca. It should be an area that receives full sun all day.
Dig a hole that is the same depth as the nursery pot in which the false yucca is growing and twice the width.
Remove the false yucca from the pot by tipping it on its side and sliding it out. If it is potbound you may have to cut the pot away with sharp pruning shears or a knife.
Plant the false yucca in the prepared hole and pack the soil around it.
Water the false yucca until the soil is moist and then do not water again. False yucca is drought-tolerant and too much water will rot it.
