Red Yucca is a tough plant made for harsh Texas weather. It is evergreen and has long slender leaves and tall red flower spikes. With time it creates a large clump, so give it room to grow, although it can be divided if needed. Red Yucca is very heat and drought tolerant and, with good drainage, needs little attention or supplemental irrigation once established. Its flowers attract moths, hummingbirds, and deer, although deer do leave the Red Yucca leaves alone.
