Hesperaloe funifera-Giant Hesperaloe

Giant Hesperaloe is an excellent, low-maintenance accent plant with a bold, striking form. This clumping, stemless, upright plant grows to 6' tall and wide. Giant Hesperaloe has stiff, broad, lime green leaves with coarse white fibers along the margins. In the summer it blooms, sending up a 12-15' tall flower spike of creamy white flowers. Giant Hesperaloe should be planted in full sun and well-drained soil. It tolerates reflected heat exposures like a champ, and is hardy to 0 F. USDA Zone 7.
