Hesperaloe funifera

Seven months of blooming! The rigidly erect bright-green foliage reaches 4' tall and is 4 in. wide at its broadest point. This robust plant will throw an 8' to 12' spike that branches out like an antenna. The erect, bell-shaped flowers are creamy white with pink-green blush on the exterior. The flowers are full of nectar and are favorites of hummingbirds. The plants will flower from early April to October.

Notes and observations about this plant

absolutely no damage at 4degrees!
this is a GREAT plant...survived the severe 2013-14 winter in OKC with flying colors...absolutely no damage at 4degrees! (Posted on 4/17/2014 by Robert).
This isn't a spectacular plant, but one of quiet beauty. It has grown for 15 years in my garden with no extra water or care. Faithfully every spring sets a large spike. It looks great with wildflowers at its base, then native grasses in fall. One of my favorites. (Posted on 5/7/2010 by linda in cc).
